Bank Updates in Response to Pandemic Impact

May 5, 2021

Update: Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Funds Exhausted

The Small Business Administration announced that Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding has been exhausted and that the PPP application portal stopped accepting applications for loans from most lenders on May 4, 2021. Mars Bank will no longer accept PPP applications.

The SBA said that it reserved approximately $6 billion in funding for previously submitted loan applications subject to hold codes that have yet to be resolved. There is also approximately $8 billion remaining in congressionally mandated funding for PPP loans made by designated “community financial institutions,” defined as minority depository institutions and community development financial institutions.

If you have a PPP loan application in process with Mars Bank, please contact your commercial relationship manager or call 724-625-1555 x250 for more information about your loan.


March 31, 2021

Update: Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Extended through May 31, 2021

The PPP Extension Act was signed into law. It extends the deadline for PPP loan applications to May 31, 2021. The law also provides 30 days past the application deadline for the Small Business Administration (SBA) to process the loan applications.

Mars Bank is participating in the program and will accept first- and second-draw PPP loan applications from current customers through the new deadline. Contact your commercial relationship manager or call 724-625-1555 x250 for more information or to start the application process.
