Legislative, Policy & Regulatory Updates

NBA Legislative Update - April 15

SBA Provides Clarification on Maturing PPP Loans

The Small Business Administration (SBA) recently clarified that it is released from liability on its guarantee of a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan if the lender has failed to request that the SBA purchase the guarantee within 180 days after maturity of the loan.

However, if the lender is conducting liquidation or debt collection litigation in connection with a loan that has matured - including where a forgiveness decision is pending within the SBA - the agency will not be released from its guarantee unless the lender fails to request that SBA purchase the guarantee within 180 days after the completion of the liquidation or debt collection litigation. If the SBA’s decision is to decline forgiveness or only partially forgive the loan, the lender will then have 180 days from the date of the forgiveness decision to request that the SBA honor the guaranty. For more information, contact
