ABA Congratulates President Biden and Vice President Harris on Inauguration

“America's banks and their more than two million dedicated employees congratulate President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on their inauguration and the start of their administration. We urge our elected leaders in both parties to come together to confront the country's challenges, starting with the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant economic damage it's caused.

"Whether it's helping a struggling small business with a PPP loan, delivering an economic impact payment to a single parent trying to make ends meet or assisting families with their mortgages during these hard times, banks of all sizes will continue to support their customers, clients and communities. We look forward to working with the new administration and the new Congress to lift the economy further so every American has the chance to thrive."
