We're Here for You: COVID-19 Updates

Since the pandemic began, every day presents new changes and challenges. But some things remain the same, like how we care for our customers, team members, and communities. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy, and we want you to know that we're here for you. Count on us for financial guidance and support. 

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) 

Since the PPP's creation in early 2020, River Bank & Trust has walked hand in hand with small businesses and nonprofits, navigating the program and helping secure funds necessary for survival.  Rely on us to continue our support during the new round of funding. 

On December 27, President Trump signed into law a supplemental appropriations bill providing additional PPP funds for businesses and nonprofit organizations that require a first loan or a second round of funding. To expedite the application process, we are pleased to provide you with a simple to use online application portal. Applications completed on our portal will be reviewed and submitted to the Small Business Administration (SBA) for approval.
