  • The amount to be spent on payroll costs has been lowered from 75 percent to 60 percent, though there is no forgiveness if payroll is less than 60 percent

  • The period in which employers may rehire or eliminate a reduction in employment, salary, or wages that would otherwise reduce the forgivable loan amount has been extended to December 31.

  • Replaces the six-month deferral of payments due under PPP loans with deferral until the date on which the amount of the loan forgiveness is remitted to the lender.

  • Establishes a minimum maturity of five years for new PPP loans as opposed to the current two-year maturity date.
