  • PPP Loan Application Extension – Last week, legislation was passed and signed into law extending the deadline to apply for Paycheck Protection Program loans to August 8, 2020. Unfortunately, this change only extended the deadline to apply for a loan, and it did not include an expansion of the program to include all 501(c) non-profits. That change will likely have to be made in the more expansive Phase Four legislation we expect by the end of the month. Nevertheless, roughly $125 billion in funding remains in the PPP. Therefore, please encourage any of you members who need assistance and have not yet obtained a loan to speak with a bank ASAP.

Ohio Receives Disaster Declaration, 3/19/2020

Today, the State of Ohio qualified for the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program. This program provides low-interest loans up to $2 million in order to help businesses overcome the temporary loss of revenue during the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic. Non-profit organizations in Ohio will also be eligible for low-interest loans through the SBA's Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.

To expedite the application process, applicants should have ready complete copies of their most recent federal income tax return and a completed and signed IRS Form 4506T, which authorizes the release of tax information. Additional information to have available would be a schedule of liabilities, personal financial statement, monthly sales figures, a current year-to-date profit-and-loss statement, and a year-end profit-and-loss statement and balance sheet for that tax year if the most recent federal income tax return has not been filed.
