SBA’s PPP Forgiveness Form | Funding for emergency food/ shelter agencies | Leadership Louisville taking applications

SBA’s new form on loan forgiveness just issued
Late last week, the Treasury Department issued its much-anticipated Loan Forgiveness Application. The 11-page PDF has four parts: (1) a PPP Loan Application Calculation Form; (2) Schedule A; (3) a worksheet for completing Schedule A; and (4) an optional Borrower Demographic Information Form. Borrowers will need to complete the Calculation Form and a Schedule A and submit them to their lenders. We recommend this just-published Forbes article for a quick overview. (We now link to five helpful Forbes articles on the PPP on our SBA Resource Page.)

Dance icon blueCNPE Self-Care Tip of the Day: You’ve heard enough news today. Switch on some dance music and get out of your seat! Even the philosopher Frederich Nietzsche observed that “We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” And playwright and Nobel laureate Samuel Beckett seconded that: “Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.”

Hang in there. CNPE has your back. We hope you’re getting the resources you need and that you have a little rhythm in your life. Stay well.

My best,

Ann L. Coffey, CEO
