On June 19th, 2020, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury made a joint announcement that they will make additional data public regarding the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), in agreement with leaders of the U.S. Senate Small Business Committee. In doing so, they will make a concerted effort to facilitate the interests of both transparency of data and protection for small businesses who receive PPP loans.
The SBA will now disclose information about the recipients of PPP loans, including: businesses names; addresses; NAICS codes; zip codes; business type; demographic information; non-profit information; jobs supported; and loan amount ranges. Loan amount ranges that account for almost 75 percent of loan dollars approved include:
- $350,000-1 million
- $1-2 million
- $2-5 million
- $5-10 million
For loan amounts below $150,000, the following data will be released: totals aggregated by zip code, industry, business type, and various demographic categories.
“We value transparency and our fiduciary responsibility to ensure American taxpayer funds are used appropriately. This responsibility goes together with the steps we are now taking to provide needed public information in step with protecting entrepreneurs’ personally identifiable information associated with their business loan,”said Administrator Jovita Carranza. “Small businesses are the driving force of our economic stability and are leading the way to allow our nation to rebound safely.”
