Update 3/30/2020: Texas First Bank will be participating in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). This is an emergency lending program administered by the US Government's Small Business Administration under its 7(a) lending program. $349 billion in funding was allocated to this program through the CARES Act, and only community banks who are SBA Preferred Lenders and already authorized to make SBA loans are able to make these loans.
