Forgiveness Portal: Opens Wednesday, August 4, 2021
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is launching an application portal on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 to allow borrowers with Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans $150,000 or less to apply for forgiveness directly through the SBA.
The application portal is a streamlined, simple pre-filled application– PPP Borrowers who qualify will be able to submit their forgiveness application directly on the portal, instead of through their lender.
This initiative will ultimately rush relief to 6.5 million small businesses.
Lenders are required to opt-in to this program – borrowers can check if their lender is participating by referencing this list.
- The SBA is standing up a PPP customer service team to answer questions and directly assist borrowers with their forgiveness applications. Borrowers that need assistance or have questions should call (877) 552-2692, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. EST.
