We have been actively working with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) since the inception of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) which began on Friday, April 3, 2020. We are pleased to announce that prior to the PPP’s funds becoming fully depleted on Thursday, April 16, 2020, Watertown Savings Bank was able to obtain over $50 Million to help 385 local businesses provide continued wage support to 5,918 local employees. The power and importance of Banking Local could not be more evident than they are today! We are here for you, your small business and our community!
The SBA’s (PPP) Paycheck Protection Program
We are currently accepting applications for a second round of the SBA’s PPP. .

If you are a local business interested in securing funds through the PPP, please complete and submit the forms below and we will work with you to process your request to the Small Business Administration. For more information on the PPP, please visit the U.S. Treasury Department.
