The Company has worked diligently to help support its customers through the SBA Paycheck Protection Program (“SBA PPP”), loan modifications and loan deferrals. On December 27, 2020, the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act (the “Economic Aid Act”) became law. The Economic Aid Act extended the authority to make SBA PPP loans through May 31, 2021. As of June 30, 2022, Home Federal Bank funded 597 SBA PPP loans totaling approximately $68.8 million to existing customers and key prospects located primarily in our trade area of NW Louisiana. Our commercial lenders and operational support staff have worked diligently to accomplish what seemed to be an insurmountable task in providing a lifeline to our small community businesses. We believe the customer interaction during this time provides a real opportunity to broaden and deepen our customer relationships while benefiting our community. We have had $68.2 million of SBA PPP loans that have been forgiven which represents 99.1% of the total amount of loans funded. The provision for loan losses for the year ended June 30, 2022 was $336,000 compared to $1.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2021. The decrease is mainly due to an improvement in our overall credit quality.

The decrease in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to the prior year quarter resulted primarily from a $438,000, or 42.6%, decrease in non-interest income, an increase of $342,000, or 10.1%, in non-interest expense, and an increase of $225,000, or 450.0%, in provision for loan losses, partially offset by an increase of $644,000, or 15.9%, in net interest income, and a $132,000, or 39.2%, decrease in provision for income taxes. The increase in the provision for loan losses for the three months ended June 30, 2022, was primarily due to loan growth. The increase in net interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was primarily due to a $397,000, or 8.5%, increase in total interest income, and a decrease of $247,000, or 38.0%, in total interest expense. The Company’s average interest rate spread was 3.36% for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to 2.85% for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
