Info for first-time PPP loan applicants …
Heartland is now taking applications for FIRST-DRAW Paycheck Protection Program loan borrowers. Please note: There are significant changes to the program so please seek advice from your accountant to determine your loan amount and eligibility.
First-draw borrowers are those who did not receive a PPP loan in 2020. If you’ve already contacted a Heartland Business Lender, use this link and follow the instructions found on the application.
NOTE: If you have NOT spoken to a Heartland Business Lender OR not filled out this form, please do so now. DO NOT proceed to the LoanStreet application until you are directed to do so. There is preliminary information we need from you before you fill out the PPP loan application.
