Paycheck Protection Program
We are excited to let our communities know that we have been and will continue to accept applications for the next round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
Please take a few minutes and look through the eligibility requirements and have your supporting documentation ready prior to making your appointment at your local Unity Bank.
This round of PPP continues to prioritize millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $284 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses through March 31, 2021, and by allowing certain existing PPP borrowers to apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan.
