The U.S. Small Business Administration has released a 1-page form that makes it easier to apply for the cancellation of Paycheck Protection Program loans. It also includes newly revised forms that comply with the current stimulus legislation. 

Congress approved the COVID-19 relief package last month and provided $284 billion of funding to small businesses in need of loans. The funds were used to reduce the economic burden of the coronavirus outbreak. The law required that the SBA release simplified forms within the first 24 hours of the legislation’s signing into law. This was to make it easier to apply for forgiveness. Additionally, it included conditions that would encourage banks in the community to lend more, especially to minority-owned businesses who had a difficult time getting loans in the past.
