New Jobs Data Shows Impact of Paycheck Protection Program in 7th District

July 9, 2020
Press Release

Jackson, MI—The U.S. Small Business Administration released data this week that showed more than 40,000 jobs in Michigan’s 7th District were retained as a result of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Congressman Tim Walberg voted to establish the PPP loan program in March, advocated for additional funding and improvements to the program, and has helped local small businesses navigate the application process to weather the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
"The personal impact of the Paycheck Protection Program has been significant in our district,” said Walberg. “This program has played an instrumental role in helping small businesses keep their doors open and supporting the livelihoods of upwards of 40,000 workers in our area. While more work remains to overcome COVID-19 and get families back on their feet, the Paycheck Protection Program’s success has helped put the economy on the path to recovery."
 
Funding for the Paycheck Protection Program is still available, and the deadline for small businesses to apply for a forgivable loan has been extended to August 8. Additional background on the PPP data and loan application is available SBA.gov. An overview of jobs retained by select cities in the 7th District is listed below.
