Paycheck Protection Program Applications

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR A LIMITED TIME.  Until May 13 at 5:00 p.m. EST, we are accepting a limited number of new applications from existing USB business customers for the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). While we will do everything we can to process your application quickly and successfully, due to limited availability of the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program funds, we cannot guarantee we will obtain SBA approval for all applications we accept.

Help us process your application quickly by providing both a completed application (including all required initials and signatures) AND the necessary supporting documents noted below at the same time.

Due to demand and limited SBA PPP funds, we may choose to suspend acceptance of new applications at any time.

We will review completed applications on a first come, first served basis.

Applications will be accepted for USB customers who have had business loans or deposit accounts with USB as of March 31, 2020. If you are not an existing USB customer, we advise you to contact your current financial institution for assistance.

Borrowers who have questions concerning eligible and ineligible expenses should consult their accountant.
