Ppp Loan Forgiveness Form

Ppp Loan Forgiveness Form

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

Congress approved the COVID-19 relief package in the month of March that offered $284 billion in funding to small businesses that needed loans. The funds were used to offset the economic impact of the coronavirus epidemic. The law required that the SBA provide simplified forms within the first 24 hours of the signing into law. This is to facilitate the application for forgiveness. It also included conditions that would encourage community banks to lend more specifically to minority-owned companies who had a difficult time getting loans last year.
