Prior to the most recent legislation, borrowers applying for PPP forgiveness had to reduce their forgiveness amounts by any Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) grants received (which were up to $10,000). The Economic Aid Act, which became law on December 27, 2020, changed that – making PPP loans fully forgivable regardless of EIDL grants received.

Now, the SBA has issued guidance and new forgiveness forms removing the need for an EIDL reduction.

For those who already filed their PPP forgiveness applications and included a reduction for an EIDL grant, the SBA will automatically remit a reconciliation payment to the PPP lender for the previously-deducted EIDL Advance amount plus interest through the remittance date. Neither the borrower nor your lender needs to take any action; this will be an automatic process.
