Public Employee Student Loan Forgiveness

The U.S. Small Business Administration issued a one-page application form aimed at simplifying the process of applying for forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program loans, along with newly updated and revised forms to comply with the most recent stimulus legislation. 

The COVID-19 relief plan that Congress adopted last month revived the PPP with $284 billion in funds for small businesses that want forgiven loans to help deal with the financial fallout of the coronavirus epidemic. It also included a requirement that the SBA to issue streamlined forms within the first 24 hours of the bill being approved by the lawmaker to streamline the procedure of applying for forgiveness, along with conditions meant to encourage more loans from community banks, particularly for minority-owned businesses who struggled to get loans last year.
