Info for Paycheck Protection Program Borrowers
Updated: June 22, 2020
We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve and help our small business and nonprofit customers through the CARES Act SBA Payment Protection Program (PPP).
We’re excited to know you’re able to put your PPP funds to positive use for your business and employees. We know many of you have questions regarding the eligible use and ensuing documentation needed to ensure the forgiveness of your PPP loan.
At this moment, we have put together a PPP Loan Forgiveness Calculator to help you estimate and track where you’re at in terms of qualifying expenses.
In the near future, we will be emailing you a borrower specific portal to help walk you through all the required application steps, including the necessary certifications and documentation uploads. We are hoping this will make the process as smooth as possible. As soon as the portal is ready to go live, we will be emailing you the link.
Until then, please refer to the U.S. Department of Treasury’s website regarding PPP Loan Forgiveness.
In the meantime, we also recommend you consult your CPA and/or legal counsel for additional insight, support and details specific to your organization. In addition, the Thurston Chamber of Commerce, Thurston Economic Development Council and other professional business associations can provide a wealth of information, expertise and assistance.
Thank you for your trust and business. If you have any questions, please direct them to CARESACTSBA@olyfed.com.
For business owners needing assistance completing their SBA application(s) or pulling together the required financial information, please contact the Thurston Economic Development Council.
