Before you begin
Prior to starting your forgiveness application through the portal, please ensure you’ve made note of the following:
Determine which application you are going to use to apply for forgiveness. If you aren’t sure, read through the instructions for both options to help you make the determination.
Have all required documents ready. Ensure you’ve gathered all of the necessary supporting documents that are required to be submitted with your application. This information is listed in the instruction document for each application.
You do not need to know your loan number or your effective date of loan funding. Those will automatically pre-populate in the application portal.
Ensure you’ve identified totals. Please highlight where the total amounts you are claiming on your application for Payroll, Rent and/or Utilities are being pulled from. This will assist in our review of your application and ensure your application is processed timely and efficiently.
There are two different portals for forgiveness applications. In order to ensure you are using the correct portal, please review the options below to begin. It should be the same portal you used to apply for your original PPP loan.
