Hudson Valley Credit Union is working closely with our business members to help you through this unprecedented time. The Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Department of Treasury have begun releasing the information that will guide the programs created through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Please check back here frequently for updates. For more information on any of these programs, including if your business is eligible, please visit sba.gov. Please note at this time, we are experiencing a very high volume of calls and emails. We will do our best to reach out to our business members as quickly as possible.
Paycheck Protection Program
This program is designed to encourage small business employers to keep their workers on payroll by providing a loan intended to cover payroll and certain other expenses. HVCU business members may qualify for a loan up to $10 million determined by eight weeks of prior average payroll plus an additional 25% of that amount. The 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. For full program details visit the SBA website. If you are a current HVCU Business member, complete the Paycheck Protection Program Application to get started. Once you complete this application, follow these steps to submit it:
- Resave your application using this naming convention: BorrowerlastnameCARESPPP (e.g. JohnsonCARESPPP).
- Email the application to your Business Loan Officer.
- If you are not working with a Business Loan Officer, email your application to email@example.com.
