SBA Paycheck Protection Program Update

At Broadway Bank, we’ve been proud to help small businesses and the community at large, work through the difficult economic environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, during this latest round of the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Broadway Bankers have processed and approved nearly 1,000 applications with more than $129 million earmarked for local businesses. We continue to be the largest processor of SBA PPP applications by an independently-owned bank in the region.

SBA PPP funding extended to May 31, 2021.

The SBA has extended the Paycheck Protection Program, and the SBA portal is now scheduled to close on May 31, 2021 or when program funds are exhausted. At this time Broadway Bank will continue to accept SBA PPP loan applications from existing Broadway Bank customers. Our Bankers are making every attempt to review and submit fully completed and supported PPP loan applications to the SBA before the close of the portal. We highly encourage existing applicants to provide all required supporting documentation as soon as possible in order to expedite the process.
