COVID-19 Small Business Relief

We've been an active participant in SBA lending for years and are relied on as a resource for much needed funding during these uncertain times.  

The CARES Act has been signed into law by President Trump and you can find the highlights below, along with other helpful links. 


Paycheck Protection Program

With the recent passage of federal legislation adding new funding for the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program, we are pleased to announce that we are able to resume accepting applications from existing BankOnBuffalo customers and will be accepted and processed in order of verified completion.

We are happy to resume the application process. Please note that, if we determine that the response to the PPP program exceeds our ability to process applications in a timely manner, we will suspend the acceptance of new applications. Eligible applicants are encouraged to submit your completed application, with all supporting documentation, at your earliest opportunity due to the limited SBA funds available.
