PPP Loan Forgiveness Application Update: August 27, 2020

Like many others across Alaska and the nation, we continue to monitor the U.S. Congress as they discuss potential new pandemic relief legislation. It is still possible the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness process may be streamlined or otherwise reduced for a number of PPP loan recipients. You may be among those who could benefit if that legislation comes to pass.

When we are ready to accept your application, you will receive an email from First National Bank Alaska ( with instructions and a link to your personalized and secure online application portal. At that time, you will be able to complete and submit your application and required documentation through the portal. If you are unable to submit your application electronically, our email will include information about making alternative arrangements.

Please refer to the SBA’s Application Form 3508 instructions and/or the simplified Application Form 3508EZ instructions for instructions on how to prepare required documentation. For forgiveness eligibility criteria, review Page 1 of the Application Instructions. For the most current regulations and related guidance, please refer to the SBA PPP website and their PPP Frequently Asked Questions.

We will continue to post any updates to the PPP forgiveness process on this webpage.

Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA)

AK SAFE Program

AIDEA is authorized to issue guarantees for loans under the program to eligible borrowers for a onetime advance up to $1 million. Funds may be used for any working capital purposes required by the Borrower arising from the COVID-19 economic emergency.

The intent of the program is to provide needed funding to eligible borrowers in addition to the available federal programs, and to cover expenses those programs may not be addressing during this emergency. The program works with Lenders under an existing secured loan agreement in which the Lender has previously extended credit (the “Pre-existing Loan”).

More information is available on the AIDEA’s website.
