The U.S. Small Business Administration has released a 1-page form which makes it simpler to request the cancellation of Paycheck Protection Program loans. The form also contains newly updated forms that are in line with the current stimulus legislation. 

Congress approved the COVID-19 relief package last month that offered $284 billion in funding to small businesses that needed loans. The funds were used to reduce the economic burden of the coronavirus pandemic. The legislation required that the SBA provide simplified forms within the first 24 hours of the signing into law. This was done to facilitate the application for forgiveness. The legislation also contained conditions to encourage community banks to make more loans specifically to minority-owned companies that had difficulty getting loans last year.
