The Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Department of Treasury have announced that they have initiated the Paycheck Protection Program, a mobilization effort of banks and other lending institutions to provide small businesses with the assistance they need.

The Paycheck Protection Program is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This is a nearly $350-billion program intended to provide American small businesses and nonprofits with eight weeks of cash-flow assistance through 100% federally guaranteed loans.

Join our webinar to learn how the Paycheck Protection Program application works and how it might help you cope with challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
