Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
WSB is accepting SBA PPP Loan Applications for review. Once reviewed and pre-approved by WSB, completed applications can be submitted by WSB to the Small Business Association (SBA) for formal approval starting on Tuesday, January 19th.
This application portal will lead you through your PPP Loan application, whether you are new First Time PPP Borrower or applying for your Second Draw PPP Loan.
If you are not currently a WSB customer, upon submission of your application, we will require that you open a WSB checking account. This will enable us to take the government-required identification and documentation steps necessary to grant the loan. If your loan is approved, we will fund your SBA loan using this account.

- Establishes a Second Draw opportunity, making additional loans available for existing PPP borrowers
- Increases the loan amounts available to specific industries such as restaurants and food service
