We are all in a season of uncertainty, with many things changing day by day. The Small Business Administration has been updating rules for lenders, which included program details and additional requirements for lenders. Because of these additional requirements, ECCU is working with Kabbage®, a partner for you to apply with for the Paycheck Protection Program.
