SBA PPP Direct Forgiveness Portal

On August 4th the Small Business Administration (SBA) will open a new streamlined portal to expedite the process of receiving forgiveness for a PPP loan. The portal will be for loans that are $150,000 or less.  

Lenders are required to opt-in to the program through directforgiveness.sba.gov.

In addition to the new portal the SBA’s customer service team is available from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at (877) 552-2692 to answer questions and directly assist borrowers with forgiveness applications. 

Note: If a business owner has already applied through their lender they cannot apply through the new portal. It is only for those who have not yet started the forgiveness process.
