While the application to receive a PPP loan was only four pages long, the Loan Forgiveness Application is eleven pages long. Additional regulations and guidance concerning the forgiveness program are expected in the coming days. Further, Congress is expected to take up legislation as soon as this week that could change how the forgiveness process works.
