Obama Student Loan Forgiveness

The U.S. Small Business Administration released a one-page form that aims to simplify the process of applying for forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program loans, together with revised and updated forms to comply with the latest stimulus legislation. 

The COVID-19 relief plan that Congress approved last month renewed the PPP with $284 billion in funds for small businesses that want forgiveness loans to help them deal with the financial fallout from the coronavirus outbreak. The legislation required that the SBA release simplified forms within 24 hours of the signing into law. This is to make it easier to apply for forgiveness. Additionally, it included conditions that would encourage banks in the community to lend more specifically to minority-owned companies that had difficulty getting loans last year.
