SBA Releases PPP Loan Data

The Small Business Administration (“SBA”) joined forces with the U.S. Treasury Department announcing it will disclose loan-level data for the nearly 4.9 million Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”)  loans made.

What we learned from the SBA’s July 6, 2020 press release is that PPP loans supported more than 51 million jobs.  A full 80% of these employees were employed by small businesses. The SBA prides its data announcement on 27% of the program funds were distributed into low- and moderate-income communities. The average loan size was approximately $100,000. 

The SBA hopes this data disclosure will bring transparency and trust to its PPP and capital lending programs. For more specific PPP loan detail see the state-by-state guide.

Summarily, the SBA’s 4.89 million loans amounted to more than $521 billion with an average loan size of $106 thousand distributed through just over 5,400 participating lenders. These lenders are the banks that received, review and approved all the PPP loan applications.

These lenders and many others are constantly seeking to distribute SBA backed loans. SBA backed loans provided by these banks are partially guaranteed by the SBA. Effectively, distributing a loan backed by the SBA reduces the bank’s risk of a borrower default. Consider using an SBA loan if you are a business looking to access capital.
