Many small businesses have been significantly impacted as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. We understand just how important it is to take care of your employees, as well as your company, during this difficult time. Below are loan options and other resources to assist our business members.

The Paycheck Protection Program Loan

This loan for businesses impacted by COVID-19 related events is intended to cover monthly payroll costs (including healthcare plans), rent, mortgage interest, interest on other existing debt, and utility payments.


Additional Paycheck Protection Program funding has been approved by the SBA. However, due to the overwhelming number of inquiries we received during the initial funding period, we are not accepting any new applications at this time.

Please note that the inquiry form previously located on this page was not an application.

If you have already completed a phone application with a Desert Financial representative and provided your financial information as requested, we have continued to process your application in anticipation of additional funding. We will contact you with follow-up information if you are approved for a PPP loan.
