LOS ANGELES - It’s no surprise the website crashed this week when the application process opened up for round two of the Paycheck Protection Program loans for small businesses. The federal government replenished $310 billion in this round after money quickly ran out the first time the program was introduced.
An analysis showed most of the $349 billion in the first round went to publically traded companies with more sophisticated relationships with their bankers.
The big question is this time, will the money truly go to the mom and pop shops that desperately need it.
In our look at bringing back business, we look at where the money should be going and talked to one of the lucky ones, a small business that received PPP money in the first round.
They were shamed and gave the money back.
