Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness

First Draw and Second Draw PPP Loans made to eligible borrowers may qualify for full loan forgiveness if during the 8-to 24-week covered period following loan disbursement:

First Draw PPP Loan forgiveness terms

  • Employee and compensation levels were maintained;
  • the loan proceeds were spent on payroll costs and other eligible expenses; and
  • at least 60 percent of the proceeds were spent on payroll costs
 

Second Draw PPP Loan forgiveness terms

  • Employee and compensation levels were maintained as required for the First Draw PPP loan;
  • the loan proceeds were spent on payroll costs and other eligible expenses; and
  • at least 60 percent of the proceeds were spent on payroll costs.

 

When and how to apply

A borrower can apply for forgiveness once all loan proceeds for which the borrower is requesting forgiveness have been used. Borrowers can apply for forgiveness any time up to the maturity date of the loan. If borrowers do not apply for forgiveness within 10 months after the last day of the covered period, then PPP loan payments are no longer deferred, and borrowers will begin making loan payments to their PPP lender.
