POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., May 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rhinebeck Bancorp, Inc., (the "Company") (NASDAQ: RBKB), the holding company of Rhinebeck Bank (the "Bank"), announced today that the Bank has received authorization from the U.S. Small Business Administration ("SBA") to fund approximately $84.9 million in loans under the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"). As a result, approximately 600 Hudson Valley small businesses and non-profits received much-needed relief from the devastating economic impact of COVID-19. Equally as important, the Bank's efforts have helped to save over 9,200 local jobs.
Rhinebeck Bank President and CEO, Michael J. Quinn, noted the tireless work of Bank staff as part of the PPP loan process. "I continue to be tremendously grateful to all of our employees who continue to provide superior customer service during this time. I'm humbled by their dedication, professionalism, respect, empathy and accountability," said Quinn. "While this was a truly collaborative effort among numerous departments, it could not have been accomplished without our Credit Administration, Commercial Lending, Branch Managers and Loan Documentation teams, who helped to process, approve and document all of the PPP loans."
