Earlier this year, the federal government executed legislation, the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits and Venues Act, providing additional Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding up to $284 million and altering forgiveness rules for currently outstanding PPP loans. The SBA is taking applications for businesses with 19 employees or less from February 24, 2021, until March 10th, 2021. If you are interested in applying, please contact your TBK Bank Relationship Manager. If you are not aware of who your Relationship Manager is, or do not currently have one, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to be assigned one. Please include your name, business name (if applicable) and typical branch you would be using. For businesses with 20 or more employees, we ask you please wait until March 10th to inquire further. For complete information regarding the requirements and details, please refer to US Department of the Treasury website here.
In 2020, TBK Bank was proud help over 2,000 local small businesses receive a total of $227 million in funding in the communities we serve during the first round of PPP loans. On Wednesday, January 20th, we will start accepting applications for First and Second Draw PPP loans from Triumph Bancorp clients.

PPP Loan Forgiveness
TBK Bank has temporarily paused accepting new loan forgiveness applications as we wait for anticipated changes to the forgiveness application by the SBA. We anticipate re-opening applications in April with the updated process and will be contacting clients needing to apply at that time. If you have already submitted an application, we appreciate your patience as we prepare and will have more information on whether you will need to reapply when we re-open applications. Please keep in mind you do not need to have applied or received forgiveness for your first PPP loan to be eligible for a second draw, and you have until the maturity date of your loan to apply for forgiveness.
If you have any questions or are looking for additional assistance options, please contact your TBK Bank Relationship Manager. Please also feel free to email us at email@example.com if you have questions or need to know who your assigned Relationship Manager. We will continue to post additional information to the web site when available. Thank you.
