In response to the effects of the COVID-19 restrictions on small businesses, FNB is dedicating $50,000 to a new "Community Proud-Local Matters" grant program to provide support to local organizations. Effective Friday, March 20, small businesses in Wayne, Edwards and White Counties can apply for up to $2,000 in the form of a grant from FNB. The one-time boost is meant to help small employers with payroll and operating costs during this time of restricted services. Businesses need not be a current FNB customer to apply.

Applications will be available Friday, March 20 and can be requested by contacting FNB at (618) 847-9606 or emailing kbook@fnbcommunitybank.com. FNB is a member FDIC.
