Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
Timberline Bank, a Small Business Administration (SBA) Preferred Lender, is happy to assist with all of your SBA-related financing needs.
The SBA has officially stated that it is no longer accepting new Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) applications due to an exhaustion of allocated funds. We are fortunate for the opportunity to have helped thousands across the communities we serve by facilitating over 185 million dollars in PPP-related funding.
We now turn our focus to assisting the thousands of customers who received a PPP loan in 2020 and 2021 with applying for forgiveness. To augment our efforts, we have partnered with Abrigo from Sageworks. This partnership has allowed us to offer our customers an easy and convenient online portal to apply for forgiveness. Customers will receive an individual link via email that they can use to finalize their forgiveness application. As of today, all those who received a PPP loan in 2020 should have received this link. Over the next couple of weeks, our teams will be sending out these forgiveness links for those borrowers who received a PPP loan in 2021. Borrowers looking to fill out their forgiveness early are encouraged to reach out to us at the link below.
For more information, contact our Business Bankers.
We appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve you. To assist in your forgiveness process, we have compiled a list of acceptable documentation below. Additionally, please feel free to reach out should you have any additional questions.
