A Message from First Sound Bank:
First Sound Bank stands with those seeking social and racial justice in our communities. To show solidarity with those seeking change in our community, and to support employees and customers wanting time to reflect and take action, we made the decision to close the First Sound Bank branch on Friday, June 12.
We are encouraging our staff during this time to educate themselves, consider ways they can help bring about change, and volunteer within their community.
First Sound Bank has always been an inclusive organization that supports the well-being of the greater Seattle community. Thank you for your support and understanding during this challenging and transformative time for our city and our region.
The CARES Act & SBA Relief Loans:
On Friday March 27th 2020 the federal government signed a historic $2 trillion economic recovery act into law. The bipartisan legislation, known as the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) was created to aid in response to the economic effects of the growing Coronavirus pandemic. As part of this legislation the federal government has set aside $660 billion dollars to be lent on an emergency basis to businesses effected by the pandemic. The loans will be granted through the government's SBA program.
