Due to high demand, Ascendus is no longer taking PPP applications.
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a forgivable loan program funded by the government to support small businesses effected by COVID-19 which ends on May 31st. All banks and most community lenders like Ascendus are no longer accepting PPP applications.
Due to recent SBA guideline changes, we are experiencing higher than normal call volume. If you have a question about a PPP application already submitted we ask for your patience as we work through the queue. If you need to contact us directly, kindly email us at [email protected].

On February 24th the Biden Administration made changes to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to make the process fairer and easier for minority-owned and very small businesses. If you have not yet applied, now may be the time.
What do the new rules mean for you?
“While the Paycheck Protection Program has delivered urgent relief to many businesses across the country, the initial round of PPP last year left too many minority-owned and mom and pop businesses out while larger, well-connected businesses got funds quickly,” a Biden administration official told reporters on Sunday.
