Forgiveness is discussed in the following sections on the PPP – IFRN FINAL (Addtl) – for self-employed and independent contractors:

That is, the borrower will not be responsible for any loan payment if the borrower uses all of the loan proceeds for forgivable purposes described below and employee and compensation levels are maintained.
