Solving the PPP Forgiveness and Administration Enigma

It’s been a mad dash to secure funds for small business borrowers through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and financial institutions have been working around the clock to help their communities during this challenging time. The work is far from over once loans are issued, however. It’s time to consider the loan forgiveness process – one of the most important aspects of the program to both borrowers and lenders. It’s also one of the biggest areas of uncertainty.

In this session hear what lenders have learned so far about the forgiveness process, based on the CARES Act, interim final rules published by the SBA, and other guidance published on the SBA and Treasury websites.

Join to learn:

  • What the guidance says so far about the forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program loans
  • How to streamline the SBA forgiveness process with the Sageworks SBA Lending solution
