SBA Debt Relief Details:

Under the CARES Act, the SBA Debt Relief Program will pay the principal, interest and any associated fees that are owed on a 504 loan in good standing (regular servicing status) for the six month period beginning April 1, 2020.

  • SBA Debt Relief applies to 7(a), 504 and microloans
  • The debt relief is automatic…borrowers do not have to apply
  • The six months of debt relief is not a loan or deferment…the payments will be forgiven.
  • For 504 loans, the debt relief only applies to the 504-portion of the financing.  The first mortgage portion is still handled by the participating third party lender.
