Center Bank Helps Over 250 Businesses With Paycheck Protection Program Loans!
Since the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) launched in April of 2020, Center Bank has approved almost $27 million in desperately needed liquidity for over 250 local businesses disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of its PPP loans went to new customers who could not otherwise access PPP funding through their large bank or credit union relationships. The bank's PPP loans to current and new customers preserved thousands of jobs for local workers. Small businesses are benefiting from Minnesota's strong community banking sector that has helped shore up their local economies.
