See how Countybank supported our communities during COVID-19 with Paycheck Protection Program loans.

Putting People First Since 1933

At Countybank, serving others has always been at the heart of who we are. During the Great Depression, a time when many other banks were shutting their doors, our founders believed that our communities deserved something more. That's why they started Countybank – a local institution dedicated to putting people first. That's why we upheld our tradition of supporting our communities through the good times and the bad by embracing Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

PPP: Our Commitment in Action

We were honored to support our local businesses by participating in the Small Business Administration's PPP loans. Too many other banks were slow to get started, placed limits on who could receive support, or chose not to get involved altogether. At Countybank, that was never an option for us. Our team worked around the clock to ensure our small business customers received support quickly – no matter how much or how little funding they needed. After all, helping our neighbors is what we do best.

Real Stories from Real Customers

We've received countless emails, letters, and phone calls from those we supported through the PPP process, and their kind words have meant the world to us. See what Countybank customers had to say about their experience.

I am thankful and blessed to have such a wonderful resource as Countybank at my fingertips. Not only did they help me navigate the PPP funding pretty easily, but they actually got me funded allowing me to bring back my furloughed workers - and they are so happy to be back. I don't know how they did it so quickly, but I will assume it took a lot of hard work and determination. A sincere thank you to all that helped.

You need to know: you're awesome and your team is fantastic. The whole process was effortless, even while the whole world was in chaos. Truly thankful and amazed.

Compared to some of what I call the "big boys," I would always rather work with a community bank. There were some banks, all they offered was their website or some web login, and we all know how hard this could be, especially if you do something so unusual as a PPP loan where parameters change before you understand them. Countybank offered assistance and information all the way and still is.

I cannot fully express in words the gratitude I owe to the staff at Countybank. During these uncertain times, they stayed far ahead of the curve on how to support their customers...[M]any of my colleagues had difficulty with their big banks, but Countybank had the correct responses before I even had to ask. The horror stories I heard from others who were scrambling for some degree of security constantly reminded me during this process that I had made a wise choice when I chose to do my banking with Countybank.

Countybank has always been a great banking partner, but never so much as they have been since the CVOID-19 situation changed the landscape for small businesses. [Their] dedication to our business allowed us to receive our PPP funding quickly to protect our employees during this crisis.

I just wanted to let you know that the process of applying for and receiving the PPP through Countybank was very simple and effective. The proceeds have helped our business immensely while going through these challenging times. Thank you so much for helping our business continue during this pandemic.

The service provided by Countybank throughout the initial SBA loan and with the COVID-19 options has been fantastic. The before, during, and following up experience was as efficient as I could have possibly hoped it would have been.

Thank you for all you do for our community. These are some odd times. I am humbled and honored to be associated with the hard-working folks at Countybank.

[It was] extraordinarily fast. [They] did a great job of filing with the SBA and keeping us informed of the progress.

I just want to drop you a line and let you know just how thankful I am for you for streamlining this PPP money and how smooth and seamless it was. Really looking forward to a long-term banking relationship with you guys.
