Whether it’s an unexpected expense or you need a loan for a long-term project, we’re here with the money and support you need to be successful.

Updates to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

Pinnacle Bank is now accepting applications for the second round of Paycheck Protection Program loans. The Small Business Administration will begin processing applications submitted by Pinnacle Bank on January 19, 2021.

If you plan to apply, contact your lender or local branch as soon as possible to start the application process.

The $900 billion COVID-19 relief package signed into law late last year allocated $284 billion in additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program. We’ve created this webpage to help you navigate the second round of this program.
