If you haven’t applied for a PPP loan yet, now is the time! You should never give up on getting funding for your business, especially in times of economic uncertainty. 

We can process your Paycheck Protection Application in 1-hour or less. Apply now before funds run out or the program ends on August 8, 2020! Northern is one of the last financial institutions still accepting and processing applications.

The Paycheck Protection Program provides small businesses with funds to pay up to 24 weeks of payroll costs including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.

Know that:

  • 60% of the loan needs to be spent on payroll
  • The coverage period extends until December 31
  • Employer payroll tax payments don’t need to be made until the end of 2020
  • Businesses won’t lose any loan forgiveness eligibility if they show some employees declined to return to their jobs or the pre-pandemic headcount is no longer required
  • The payback period for new loan applicants is at least five for those not seeking or who are ineligible for forgiveness

All Small Businesses Eligible

Small businesses with 500 or fewer employees—including nonprofits, veterans organizations, tribal concerns, self-employed individuals, sole proprietorships, and independent contractors—are eligible. Businesses with more than 500 employees are eligible in certain industries.
