ARA Signed a Letter to Congress on Second PPP Loan for Small Businesses

Aug 05 2020

On Aug. 5, ARA signed a letter to Congress supporting a second Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) for qualifying small businesses and calls for them to expand eligibility to a greater share of struggling small businesses.

By lowering the gross revenue reduction requirement from 50 percent to 20 percent or greater, access to a second round of PPP funding and the new, long-term, low-interest loan program may be the lifeline many small businesses like ag retailers need to stay in business throughout the economic recovery.
