UTICA, N.Y. – Small businesses in the 22nd district received more than $650 million in assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), according to the Small Business Administration.
SBA data shows funding went to more than 7,000 area businesses and saved nearly 100,000 jobs in the region.
“Small business owners in NY-22 have been working around the clock to keep their employees on the payroll, and so has our team. We are always available as a resource to local business owners, and I will keep advocating for relief for our workers on the federal level,” said Congressman Anthony Brindisi, D-22.
Brindisi says he has been working toward expanding the PPP program, and making it more flexible for business owners and employees.
The deadline for the next round of PPP applications has also been extended to Aug. 8.
Brindisi encourages any lenders or business owners in need of help to call his Utica office at 315-732-0713.
