Payroll Protection Program

The Payroll Protection Program (PPP) was established through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help eligible businesses and organizations pay their workers. Recipients receive a low-interest loan that may be partially or fully forgiven if program requirements are satisfied. Read more about PPP on the US SBA website.

*You must have a Coop Fed business account in good standing to participate in our PPP assistance program. We can help you open a Coop Fed business account if you don't already have one. With a low $4 monthly fee, no transaction limits, and no minimum balance, our business checking account provides you with a kinder banking option. 


COVID-19 Relief Grants

You may qualify for a small business relief grant if you can document a 25% decrease in revenue due to the coronavirus crisis. Update: round two of the grant program is now closed. Another round of funding may become available. Learn more and join the wait list here
