February 23, 2021--In early February, the SBA released data on more than 891,000 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans issued since the reopening of the program on January 11. Of this new tranche of loans, roughly 106,000 were of $150,000 or more, amounting to $45 billion in sum. Those new loans of $150,000 or more are now available on Covid Stimulus Watch.
Since December, the SBA has disclosed exact dollar amounts for all PPP loans in its data releases. The new batch of loans, as well as previous loans, are available on Covid Stimulus Watch with exact loan values, allowing for more precise analysis of the program.
PPP loan data on Covid Stimulus Watch can be searched by company name, location (city, state, zip, congressional district), NAICS industry code, loan amount, ownership, parent company, and select regulatory violations.
