Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
As an SBA preferred lender, the Bank participated in both rounds of the PPP program, and as of June 30, 2020 we processed over 1,400 loans, securing over $456 million for our customers, and helped save over 41,000 jobs.
Please note: We cannot provide guidance on the Small Business Administration (SBA) PPP program requirements. They are complex and we encourage you to discuss any questions with your legal advisor or refer to the SBA website for details.
For EagleBank PPP Loan Recipients (Update as of October 16, 2020):
PPP Loan Forgiveness Applications for PPP Loans of $50,000 or Less
As noted in our prior communications, EagleBank had not opened its online PPP Portal to submit Forgiveness Applications to date as we have been monitoring pending legislation that was likely to affect the forgiveness process. Last week, the SBA provided a new, simplified application (3508S) for PPP borrowers that had original loan amounts of $50,000 or less. A Borrower that, together with its affiliates, received PPP loans totaling $2 million or greater cannot use this form.*
The SBA has not begun accepting the new 3508S form at this time and, therefore, EagleBank is not accepting Forgiveness Applications for borrowers with loans of $50,000 or less as the new application form will greatly simplify your application process. Once the SBA begins accepting the new 3508S form, you will receive an email providing information on how to access the EagleBank PPP Portal to file your Forgiveness Application.
Prior to logging onto the PPP Portal, EagleBank recommends you review the SBA Form 3508S to become familiar with the supporting documentation you will be required to upload with your Forgiveness Application.
As a reminder, even after EagleBank opens up its online Portal, when you submit your Forgiveness Application is at your discretion. The SBA has stated that a borrower can apply for forgiveness up to 10 months from the end of their covered period. The covered period is either 8 weeks or 24 weeks at the borrower’s choosing.
*If you, together with your affiliates, received PPP loans totaling $2 million please reach out to your relationship manager and we will assist you in accessing the PPP Portal.
PPP Loan Forgiveness Applications for PPP Loans Greater than $50,000

Helpful Background Information
Enacted March 27, 2020 the CARES Act included several provisions designed to provide relief to individuals and businesses as well as the banking system. Among the more significant components of this legislation for our Company was the creation of the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). Loans made under the PPP are fully guaranteed as to principal and interest by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”), whose guarantee is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. PPP-covered loans also afford borrowers forgiveness up to the principal amount of the PPP-covered loan if the proceeds are used to retain workers and maintain payroll or make mortgage interest, lease and utility payments. The SBA will reimburse PPP lenders for any amount of a PPP-covered loan that is forgiven.
To help offset the impact of COVID-19, CARES offers payroll protection to businesses with fewer than 500 employees. The SBA will cover certain payroll and other operating costs used to calculate the loan amount as long as such businesses remain open and maintain payroll during this emergency. Loans may be fully forgiven if there are no employee layoffs for four months or if any employees previously laid off are rehired. The program works retroactively to February 15, 2020, to help restore the workforce.
Please work directly with your EagleBank Relationship Manager or Branch Representative to discuss the status of any submitted application or inquiry.
