Public Service Loan Forgiveness Acceptance Rate

Public Service Loan Forgiveness Acceptance Rate

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

The COVID-19 relief plan that Congress approved last month renewed the PPP with $284 billion in funding for small businesses seeking forgiveness loans to help them deal with the financial fallout of the coronavirus epidemic. The law required that the SBA release simplified forms within 24 hours of the signing into law. This was to make it easier to apply for forgiveness. It also included conditions to encourage community banks to make more loans specifically to minority-owned companies that had difficulty getting loans in the past.
