Total Funded Loan Amount: $167,606,302
On December 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law a $900B COVID-19 relief bill, allocating $284 billion for First and Second Draw forgivable Paycheck Protection Program loans and making several simplifications to the program. See what's different about this round of PPP in this NBC story and find even more clarification in this helpful resource.
Currently, banks our size start processing the next round of PPP applications through the SBA on Tuesday, January 19, 2020.
Regretfully, due to overwhelming demand, we at Vista Bank are focusing on assisting current clients with First and Second Draw PPP Loan applications at this time. Given our commitment to entrepreneurs, small businesses, and the communities we all serve, and because funding for this program is currently capped, if you are not an existing client of Vista Bank, we recommend you contact your primary bank or other participating financial institutions for assistance. If you are a current client, please contact your Vista loan officer directly or your nearest Vista location.

The December 27th bill also clarified that businesses that received PPP loans would be able to take tax deductions for the expenses covered by forgiven loans. See your accountant for clarification on how this impacts your business.
The latest bill repeals the EIDL Advance Deduction that had required PPP borrowers to deduct the amount of their EIDL Advance from their PPP forgiveness amount and establishes that EIDL Advance borrowers should be made whole without regard to whether those borrowers are eligible for PPP forgiveness.
It also includes an additional $20 billion for new Economic Injury Disaster Loans. Interested businesses must apply for these loans directly with the SBA as they did prior.

I want to take a moment to share how much Vista Bank has helped our third-generation small business. Myself not having any experience with SBA Loans/Grants, I was intimidated by the forgiveness process. I am so thankful Vista had Ben on their team to assist us. We cannot thank you enough for all you have done for and with us. Here's to the future of working together.
