Paycheck Protection Program

Fremont Bank is committed to helping small businesses who have been severely impacted by COVID-19. We understand that in this unprecedented and difficult time, many of you need financing, and we are here to help.

The Paycheck Protection Program, part of the new CARES stimulus package, is a federal loan program aimed at helping small businesses who have been impacted by COVID-19. Fremont Bank is a SBA Preferred Lender, and we are participating in the program. If you are interested in applying through Fremont Bank, please submit your basic information below. We will process loans for as many local businesses as we are able to, and will contact you when we are able to submit your application.

Important Note: The SBA will not accept any new applications after June 30, 2020. To ensure we have appropriate time to process requests, we will continue to accept new requests for PPP loans until Friday, June 19, 2020. If you are interested in securing PPP funds, please be sure to complete this form before June 19.
