You can now apply for your Paycheck Protection Program loan forgiveness through our application portal. Please follow the instructions outlined below to begin your application.
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.
If you have obtained an EIDL Advance but only obtained the advance and not a larger EIDL loan, the SBA requires you to net the advance amount you received out of your forgiveness. Therefore, you will ultimately be required to repay the advance amount.
Forgiveness for loans $150,000 and under could change. Although you can apply for forgiveness today,Congress continues to debate a 4th Relief Bill that currently includes an auto-forgiveness path for smaller PPP loans of $150,000 and under. If this were passed and signed into law, the forgiveness process for these smaller PPP loans will be simplified significantly. We do not have a date on when this will be decided, but will update you on any changes as we continue to learn more.
