AGC Top News

AGC of America has just learned that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) intends to withdraw the “Loan Necessity Questionnaire” that has heavily burdened all applications for the forgiveness Paycheck Protection Program Loans of over $2M and long delayed the forgiveness of many of those loans.

AGC of America sued SBA last December for developing the form entirely in secret, and without public input, and for using the form to change the de facto requirements for the forgiveness of such loans. For several weeks, AGC and SBA have been trying to negotiate a settlement of that lawsuit. It was in the course and context of those negotiations that AGC learned of SBA’s decision to completely withdraw the questionnaire, and that the agency has already begun the process of doing so.  Recently, and perhaps for that reason, AGC has also received an exceptionally large number of reports of the forgiveness of loans over $2M.

At this point, AGC of America does not have any additional information but does expect more information to be forthcoming. Once it does, AGC will certainly follow-up. In the interim, this is excellent news for the thousands of AGC members who accepted such loans from SBA in a good faith effort to keep their people working though the pandemic.
