The Biden Administration reforms plans to build on recent PPP successes initiated by Small Business Committee Chair Nydia Velázquez in increasing assistance to businesses with ten or fewer employees in underserved and rural areas.  They also build on the work of Financial Services Chair Maxine Waters in increasing assistance through community-based lenders that specialize in serving those markets.

As President Biden advances these actions, the House is preparing this week to pass the American Rescue Plan: transformative legislation to crush the virus and deliver urgently needed relief. With its passage, America’s families and small businesses will know that Help Is On The Way.
