WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWTI) — Small businesses across the country are continuing to receive funding from the second round of the Paycheck Protection Program.

The U.S. Small Business Administration released a report on Wednesday detailing Paycheck Protection Program and COVID-19 economic relief data.

In the latest round of funding that has been open since January 11, 2021, over 1.6 million loans have been guaranteed by the Small Business Administration totaling $125.75 billion. Additionally, over 70% of all 2021 PPP loans have been for $50,000 or under, which according the Coleman, “shows the current round of PPP is successfully reaching smaller borrowers.”
