Paycheck Protection Program

NORTHFIELD BANK IS NOW ACCEPTING PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM (PPP) APPLICATION REQUESTS

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is currently only accepting Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) applications from Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs).  The SBA will accept applications from PPP-eligible lenders with $1 billion or less in assets on Friday, January 15.  The SBA will accept applications from Northfield Bank when the program opens for all lenders on Tuesday, January 19.

Requesting an Application
Northfield Bank will only be accepting PPP application requests through our website. Please do not visit a Northfield Bank branch to apply for a PPP loan.  Please request your link by submitting the Paycheck Protection Program Request Form below. An application link will be emailed to eligible customers who submit the form below. Eligible applications will be uploaded to the SBA once they begin accepting applications from banking institutions. 

There are limited funds available for this round of PPP Second Draw and PPP First Draw loans.  Although we will assist as many customers as possible, we can provide no assurance we will be able to honor your request for a PPP application.  In addition, we can provide no assurances that if we accept your PPP application we will be able to process it, or obtain SBA approval. We anticipate we will only be able to accept a limited number of PPP applications to allow us to timely process applications in the order they are received.

Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 (PPPFA)

On June 5, 2020, the President of the United States signed into law the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 (PPPFA).  This act revises the existing rules related to Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness.  Highlights of the act as it relates to loan forgiveness include:

  • Requiring 60% of the covered loan amount be used for eligible payroll costs (previously 75%).
  • Extending, at the borrower’s option, the covered period to use the funds from eight weeks to 24 weeks.
  • Extending the deadline to rehire workers from June 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020, and providing additional exemptions to loan forgiveness reduction.
  • Extending the deferral period that a borrower has to pay principal, interest and fees.


We recommend borrowers monitor these events and consult with their tax advisor, attorney, or business advisor, as appropriate in determining the appropriate time to submit an application for PPP loan forgiveness.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has issued detailed rules and guidance related to PPP loan forgiveness.  The information below is provided as a service to Northfield Bank PPP borrowers and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the appropriate authoritative rules and guidance regarding the PPP and loan forgiveness issued by the SBA, and should not be relied on as authoritative.  PPP loan forgiveness guidance is subject to change by the SBA at any time.  Please visit sba.gov for the latest information pertaining to loan forgiveness.
