The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll.
SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.
The Paycheck Protection Program will be available through June 30, 2020.
Guidelines specific to M&F Bank are as follows:
- The PPP is for existing M&F Bank customers only.
- M&F Bank customers cannot be in default on an existing loan or have a previous charge off with the bank.
- Salaries over $100,000 are not eligible to participate (see checklist instructions).
- We will process PPP loan requests up to $1MM.
- Customers must submit detailed payroll records to apply for the program.
