  2. Streamlined application and SAME DAY APPROVAL.
  3. Maximum loan amount of $10 million
  4. Loan forgiveness if proceeds used for payroll costs and other designated business operating expenses in the 8 weeks following the date of loan origination (due to likely high subscription, it is anticipated that not more than 25% of the forgiven amount may be for non-payroll costs)
