Fortunately, the data now proves that the Paycheck Protection Program has provided Main Street employers and workers with a critical lifeline to stay afloat during this difficult time.
I’ve worked with many of our local employers when I advocated for this program in Congress, and I’ll keep fighting for our small businesses and their employees in Southwest Washington to get them through this crisis.
The recently extended deadline to apply for a Paycheck Protection Program loan is August 8th. Small businesses, non-profits, independent contractors and other eligible borrowers are all encouraged to apply.
