If, in the sole discretion of Alpine Bank or the SBA, materials received by Alpine Bank are deemed not to comply with SBA PPP Application Requirements for complete applications, then such materials will be deemed invalid for SBA processing and returned to the sender for completion and resubmittal. In the sole discretion of Alpine Bank or the SBA, only materials meeting SBA Application Requirements will be deemed an SBA PPP Application. Complete applications ONLY are eligible to enter the SBA processing queue. Incomplete materials will have no standing nor processing status or priority. Incomplete applications may be rejected by the SBA.
- Once you have completed the above steps, please send your application materials to the Alpine Bank Relationship Officer you have been working with on this PPP, or securely send the following items via email to [email protected].
Note: Please do not zip files prior to sending.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Both the SBA and Alpine Bank's processing team continue to work on more effective processing solutions, so transmission instructions and requirements may change without notice. PLEASE be sure to check this page on Alpine Bank's website to re-verify application submittal instructions and information. Please be advised that receipt of complete applications by Alpine Bank is no guarantee that said applications will be processed. Alpine Bank will continue to make good faith best efforts to process received applications, but Alpine Bank cannot accept responsibility for the functionality and availability of SBA assets and resources. Also, unfortunately there is no available solution to allow applicants to track the status and progress of completed applications.
The SBA will make the final determination on terms and conditions for PPP 7(a) Guaranties approval. SBA PPP loan forgiveness shall be subject to SBA Interim Final Guidance issued April 2, 2020 and any subsequent guidance issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and/or the SBA.
As of the published time of this memo, Alpine Bank's continued primary objective is to make best efforts to secure SBA 7(a) Guaranties for applicants under the SBA PPP as is possible...BUT there is NO guarantee that all applications submitted and processed will receive SBA PPP 7(a) Guaranties. Alpine Bank will be working under a good faith assumption that SBA will provide SBA PPP 7(a) Guaranties for as many applications received as possible. A completed and submitted application is no guarantee that an SBA PPP 7(a) Guaranty needed to fund your loan will be approved.
Please be aware that many important questions about this program still remain, and Alpine Bank continues to do its utmost to get answers to these questions. As a result, there is reasonable probability that this program, application materials and processing may change without notice.
If you have further questions, please contact your Alpine Bank Relationship Officer.
Regards, take good care,

SBA Paycheck Protection Program Forgiveness (Updated 6/17/2020)
Update: Wednesday, June 17 9:00 AM MDST
The SBA and Treasury Department have released updated guidance to the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) based on House Bill H.R. 7010. The House Bill made a number of important changes which modify how PPP loan funds can be forgiven via this program.
While these new documents provide some valuable insight for our borrowers, the bank is still waiting for guidance from the SBA on how to submit these materials to the SBA for loan forgiveness. As such, Alpine Bank will not begin accepting SBA PPP forgiveness applications until further notice.
In the meantime, we refer applicants to the following links on the program:
Details regarding the process for applying for loan forgiveness were updated and released by the SBA on Wednesday, June 17, 2020.
- Loan Forgiveness Instructions & Application Form EZ
- Loan Forgiveness Instructions & Application Form
We will continue to monitor all new information from Treasury, the SBA and industry advocacy organizations as it becomes available, and as always we will keep this site updated with new information as appropriate.
We are with you in hoping that the current pandemic conditions subside soon and that normalcy and our Colorado lifestyles can resume. In the meantime we wish each and every one of you and your families and friends all the best.
Regards, best wishes and take great care,
Chief Retail Officer
SBA Paycheck Protection Program Job Retention Clarification
Updated: Friday, July 17, 2020
Small Business Administration, Paycheck Protection Program update:
Job Retention Clarification
The number of jobs saved by the Small Business Administration’s Payroll Protection Program (SBA PPP) will be determined by the results of SBA’s loan forgiveness process which has not yet been shared with participating banks nor borrowers.
Some recent erroneous media reports have created confusion and spread misinformation about how many jobs the PPP rescue loan program has preserved. The fact is we won’t know that number until the SBA has completed its loan forgiveness decisions—a process which has not begun.
Some current confusion is related to the SBA PPP loan application providing space to list jobs expected to be retained by the loan, but not requiring this information to submit the application or receive a loan. As a result, many approved loan applications left this part of the form blank. Some have interpreted this to mean no jobs have been saved by these loans which is absolutely incorrect.
While the number of jobs retained was not a requirement for SBA loan approval, it is a requirement and the foundation for the amount of the loan which will be forgiven by the SBA.
We will keep our website updated with new information from the Treasury and SBA regarding PPP loan forgiveness.

Alpine Bank COVID 19 Deferral Program
The program works as follows:
- Alpine Bank will defer your loan payments. This does not mean that you do not owe the payment (including interest); it simply means you are not obligated to make payments on the loan for the next 90 days.
- The impact of the deferred payments-including the interest that accrues on your loan-will be applicable to your final payment (or when it pays off, if in advance of the loan's contracted maturity).
- After 90 days, you will be expected to resume normal payments. If you do not feel that this will be possible or will need other accommodations, please discuss with your loan officer.
- If currently escrowing for taxes or insurance with your loan payment-we ask that you make the escrow payments during this time period. If you do not feel this is feasible and are unable to make the escrow payments, when payments resume they will be applied to the outstanding escrows due prior to being applied to any interest or principal.
Thank you for being a loyal Alpine Bank customer.
Please contact your loan officer if you have any other questions or concerns.
