Forgiveness Applications for Borrowers Under $150,000 ONLY
The SBA has released a new forgiveness application form 3508S for borrowers under $150,000. This is a one-page attestation on use of funds and employee headcount (with no supporting documentation). Peoples PPP borrowers can submit the 3508S one-page application to CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA) for the forgiveness of their PPP loan. Access the new form here.
Timeline for Forgiveness Applications
Once you submit your application to CLA for forgiveness they review for accuracy and completeness and will follow up if further information is needed. Once complete by CLA, they will send to Peoples and we will in turn submit to the SBA. This first process can take up to 60 days. Once submitted to the SBA, they have up to 90 days to provide a final decision on the forgiveness application. Please understand that once you submit your application, it could be a matter of weeks or even months until that final decision is made. The Bank will notify you, in writing, and have you sign an attestation of forgiveness within 15 days of forgiveness by the SBA.
Please note that all PPP loans are in deferral (meaning no payments are due) for ten months from the end of the covered period (which is between 8-24 weeks from your funding date, whichever you elect on your forgiveness application). For most borrowers choosing 24 weeks, it would mean you have no payments due for approximately 16 months from fund date. If the forgiveness application is submitted to the SBA before the end of the deferral period, no payments are required. Please be cognizant of the review time it takes with CLA and try to submit your forgiveness application 30-60 days before the end of your deferral period. If you have received an interest payment due notice, please contact your banker.

Economic Injury Disaster Loan

The SBA will provide low-interest federal disaster loans to small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses must apply directly through the SBA for this loan.
How It Works
Under the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, small businesses and non-profits may qualify for up to $2 million in loans to cover losses resulting from the pandemic.
  • Fixed interest rates are 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profits
  • Can provide working capital to meet needs of payroll, accounts payable, and fixed debt payments
  • May be able to extend payments for up to 30 years (terms of repayment on a case-by-case basis)
  • May not be used for expansion or to replace lost sales or profits
  • Turnaround times are currently 21 days, with loans funded 3-5 days later
  • Deferments available for up to 12 months
Businesses may request an expedited disbursement that is to be paid by the SBA within three days of the request. The advance may not exceed $10,000, and must be used for authorized costs, but is otherwise not repayable if the EIDL Loan is not approved by the SBA.
More details are available on the SBA’s website.
