Paycheck Protection Program - 2021 Loans
Loans less than $150,000
The SBA has simplified the forgiveness process for 2021 PPP loans with balances of less than $150,000. Unlike the past PPP forgiveness process, the upcoming process is completed by the borrower directly with the Small Business Administration (SBA).
Act now if you have used all your funds. Take time to apply for forgiveness.
