Financial Relief Updates and Options

Due to the tremendous interest in the Paycheck Protection Program, we will stop accepting new applications at noon on Saturday, April 11, 2020.  All applications submitted prior to that time will be processed and we  hope to begin accepting additional applications in the near future. Please continue to check our website for updates regarding the acceptance of new applications.


At American River Bank we provide responsive service and creative solutions everyday – and we will continue to do so through the challenges of COVID-19. We know that you are unique and need personalized solutions now more than ever. And as your Bank, we already know you and this allows us to respond more quickly and efficiently to meet your needs.


During these unprecedented conditions we are experiencing together, American River Bank is committed to providing financial relief. If you are experiencing a financial hardship, please review our COVID-19 Support information where you can find information and apply for the Paycheck Protection Program, ARB Loans & Modifications, and general ARB COVID-19 Updates.

COVID-19 Scams 

If you receive calls, emails, or other communications claiming to be from the Treasury Department and offering COVID-19 related grants or stimulus payments in exchange for personal financial information, or an advance fee, or charge of any kind, including the purchase of gift cards, please do not respond. These are scams. Please contact the FBI at so that the scammers can be tracked and stopped.

Fraud involving payment of Federal taxes should be reported to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.
