From More Than $1.2 Billion Remaining Available

Via Payroll Protection Program and the Small Business Administration

Montana – Montana employers are still able to leverage the Federal Payroll Protection Program in order to help their businesses and non-profits recover from the Covid-19 pandemic response.

“Montanans are doing everything they can to renew our communities, our economy, and local businesses,” said Todd O’Hair, President and CEO of the Montana Chamber of Commerce.  “We are working to be sure our communities are safe and doing that which is appropriate to revitalize our businesses.  It is important that every tool we have is put to work, including the remaining $1.2 billion in Payroll Protection Program resources.”

“Montana bankers and their customers stepped up to the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic, with more than 21,000 Paycheck Protection Program loans made so far and a total of $1.76 billion in support of Montana businesses, employees and our economy,” said Cary Hegreberg, President and CEO of the Montana Bankers Association.  “Along with the talented and dedicated people of the Small Business Administration, Montana bankers remain engaged and are continuing their work with business owners who are leveraging the PPP program and other resources in standing up their businesses in the wake of this crisis.  It’s important to work closely with your banker as you push toward profitability.”
