The Small Business Administration (SBA), and the Department of the Treasury, released the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness Application on May 15, 2020. This application and information will help PPP recipients with loan forgiveness at the end of the coverage period which began with the disbursement date of the loan.

If you received a PPP loan from FAIRWINDS, we encourage you to review the Loan Forgiveness Application and begin collecting the necessary documentation to complete the application. A checklist is provided below to assist with this. We will inform you by email and on this website page when the loan forgiveness online application portal is live.
