Paycheck Protection Program Update – January 2021 


The latest round of economic relief for small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is here, and we’re closely monitoring all developments. The SBA has opened acceptance of applications in stages, and we’ll be ready to accept applications on Tuesday, January 19th. Funding will be available for new borrowers as well as those that had participated in the PPP last year. Please contact one of our One Florida Bank Relationship Managers for further details and to start your application. 

We look forward to assisting our valued customers in this next phase of assistance and helping potential new customers. Our approach will be the same as always: serving our local community with local bankers navigating the loan process with personal service and guidance.
