Statement

ABA Thanks President and Congress for Providing More Relief for Small Business

"We thank President Trump and Congress for finalizing bipartisan legislation to provide much-needed additional funding for the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program. While this program has already provided a critical financial lifeline for nearly 1.7 million struggling small businesses hurt by COVID-19, millions of other businesses are still looking for help.

"Signing this legislation into law will allow America’s banks to quickly deliver additional relief to as many of those small businesses as possible, saving jobs and limiting the economic damage from COVID-19."
