Financial Assistance for Businesses
Windsor Federal is committed to helping our customers affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Congress and President of the United States are expected to approve a funding Bill providing an additional $320 billion to replenish the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program. Once again, Windsor Federal will partner with Kabbage Funding™ in assisting small businesses.
PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM (PPP)*
The SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was designed to provide an incentive for small businesses to keep their employees on the payroll. On April 3rd, the PPP loan applications opened up to businesses nationwide. Due to issues with the program’s rollout, many institutions, including Windsor Federal, have experienced significant challenges with the ability to process loan requests. In order to better serve our customers, we are partnering with Kabbage Funding™ to assist us in processing these loan requests. It has been reported that the SBA will forgive the loan if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities. The program is accepting applications through June 30, 2020, with loans available for 2.5 times your average monthly payroll over the 12 months preceding the loan, up to $10 million. There’s no collateral or personal guarantee.
