New SBA Forgiveness Portal for Second Draw Loans of $150,000 or Less

A new and easy-to-use portal from the Small Business Administration now is available to streamline loan forgiveness for second draw PPP loans of $150,000 or less.

Instead of working with your banker to navigate this process, this new portal lets you expedite the forgiveness process and connect directly with the SBA.

For second draw PPP loans of $150,000 or less, you can directly secure loan forgiveness through this new, simple and secure process with the SBA. Here is the link to get started: SBA Direct Forgiveness Platform and a step-by-step guide from the SBA.

Please note that if you received your first PPP loan during the second round of the program, the SBA Direct Forgiveness Platform is not available. Please contact your Relationship Manager to begin the appropriate process.
