Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
2nd Draw PPP Borrowers

Congress passed and President Trump signed amendments to the March 2020 CARES and other laws to create a new PPP Second Draw Program for previous PPP borrowers who have exhausted their loan funds and can demonstrate significantly reduced receipts. There are special rules for the hospitality industry. See the eligibility details below. Customers Bank is now taking PPP Second Draw Loan applications. You can apply by using the link. NOTE: the SBA is staggering the start-dates for loan approval and funding by lender type and size. Customers Bank will not be able to submit your 2nd Draw loan application for funding until after Wednesday, January 13 at the earliest.
