Economic Impact Student Loan Forgiveness Program

The U.S. Small Business Administration released a one-page form aimed at simplifying the application process to forgive Paycheck Protection Program loans, as well as newly revised and updated forms to conform to the requirements of the latest stimulus legislation. 

The COVID-19 aid package Congress adopted last month revived the PPP with $284 billion in financing for small-scale businesses looking for forgiven loans to help cope with the economic fallout of the coronavirus epidemic. The legislation required that the SBA issue simplified forms within 24 hours after the bill’s passage into law. This was done to facilitate the application for forgiveness. Additionally, it included conditions that would encourage community banks to lend more, especially to minority-owned businesses who had a difficult time getting loans in the past.
