There's an online application at the bank's micro-website. However, the application makes it look like you'll need to come into a branch to complete the application process. The bank is located in Danville, Kentucky. In the bank's location page they provide directions on driving to the branch from Lexington, Louisville and Bowling Green.

It's a new bank that was just established in March 2009. Thus, it doesn't yet have any ratings for safety and soundness. It's a FDIC member (FDIC Certificate # 58848).
