Disability Loan Forgiveness

The U.S. Small Business Administration has released a single-page form designed to make it easier for applicants to complete the application process to forgive Paycheck Protection Program loans, along with newly updated and revised forms that comply with the most recent stimulus legislation. 

Congress approved the COVID-19 relief plan last month and offered $284 billion in funding to small businesses that needed loans. This money was used to offset the economic impact of the coronavirus epidemic. The package also mandated the SBA to issue streamlined forms within 24 days of the legislation being approved by the lawmaker to streamline the process of applying for forgiveness, along with conditions meant to encourage more loans from community banks, specifically for minority-owned businesses who had trouble getting loans in the past.
