SBA Paycheck Protection Program

SBA Paycheck Protection Program

Helping our community’s small businesses during COVID-19.

While we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, we want to assure you of our commitment to protect the safety of our clients, our employees and our communities. Although the times are changing, our dedication to putting our community’s banking needs first remains unchanged.

The PPP Loan program has received a second round of funding, and we will continue to accept applications. We are also now processing applications submitted after the first round of funding was exhausted in the order they were submitted. If your current bank couldn’t address your needs in the first round of funding, we are here to help get your small business the financial relief it needs. Our team is available to answer any questions you may have during this time.

Download and submit your completed application by dropping it off at your local FMS Bank branch at the drive-up window, directly to an FMS Bank loan officer or via email to sbappp@fmsbank.com.
