The Hudson Valley needs its small businesses, including yours. As a Small Business Association lender, MHV is working to bring the relief outlined by the Paycheck Protection Program to as many of our business members as possible.

How the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Helps You
PPP was designed to provide small businesses with financial help for qualified expenses. PPP loans are intended to cover these qualified expenses for any 8-week period between February 15, 2020 and June 30, 2020.

Qualified Expenses
Expenses that qualify for PPP include payroll costs, interest payments on mortgages, rent payments, leases, and utility service agreements. Payroll costs include: employee salaries (up to an annual rate of pay of $100,000), hourly wages and cash tips, paid sick or medical leave, and group health insurance premiums.

PPP is available to the following businesses:
Small business employing 500 employees or fewer
Sectors with higher Small Business Administration (SBA) employee threshold
Employers in NAICS code 72, “Accommodation and Food Services,” if each of its locations have 500 employees or fewer
501(c)(19) veteran organizations
501(c)(3) nonprofits, including religious organizations
Independently owned franchises with under 500 employees, that are approved by SBA
Sole proprietors, independent contractors, gig economy workers, and self-employed individuals

Collateral requirements are waived
Payments will be deferred for at least six months
Qualified amounts eligible for forgiveness
No interest charged on forgiven amounts
Interest rates for non-forgiven amounts capped at 1%
Maximum loan amount of $350,000

Forgiveness Criteria
PPP loans are eligible to convert to a grant which is not required to be repaid. The amount that is eligible for forgiveness is based on the amount that is spent on the qualified expenses as outlined above and not to exceed the original loan amount. Amounts used for non-qualified expenses are not eligible for forgiveness. Amounts that are not forgiven will have a term of 2 years and an interest rate of not more than 1.0%. If your staff was laid off prior to applying for PPP, any payroll expenses for employees rehired before June 30, 2020 will be forgiven.

Applying With MHV
Businesses must make a good-faith certification that the loan is necessary due to the uncertainty of current economic conditions caused by COVID-19, that they will use the funds for qualified expenses and that they do not have another loan for the same purpose pending at any financial institution. 
• MHV is requiring a Personal Guarantee of any owner of 20% or more. 
This is a very complex loan program and we encourage you to consult with your accountant to determine the amount you are eligible for prior to submitting your request.
