SBA Paycheck Protection Program
Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans were authorized with the Cares Act to assist businesses through the COVID-19 emergency and continued with a second stimulus package passed by Congress. A portion of the loan will be forgiven.
Businesses are facing unique challenges during this time. Please email or call 907-459-5957. We will work with businesses in the community on a case-by-case basis to assist in any way possible. The Spirit of Alaska business lending team is here to help our membership and local businesses navigate the cash-flow assistance provided by Congress.
