About the event

Small Businesses who received a PPP loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) for under $100,000 must apply for forgiveness through the PPP Direct Forgiveness Portal Workshop. SBA will begin referring defaulted PPP borrowers with loans under $100,000 to the U.S. Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service for collection beginning March 4, 2024.

What does this mean?

Small business borrowers who are referred to Treasury and IRS for collection may face significant consequences, including:             

Negative impact on credit scores; 

Withholding of future state and federal tax refunds and any potential federal government funding (such as social security); and,

Referral of your loan to private debt collectors to pursue repayment, who may use tactics like wage garnishment.


Loan forgiveness is still available for most PPP borrowers.

If you have a PPP loan under $100,000, you may be able to apply for loan forgiveness now at the SBA PPP Direct Forgiveness Portal.

A step-by-step guide to use the portal can be found here.
