PHOENIX, May 5, 2020—From Chad Heinrich, NFIB Arizona state director, on today’s release of the latest survey of NFIB small-business-owning members showing the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) popular among small businesses, with 77% of owners reporting they have successfully submitted an application and 61% saying they’ve received the funds.

“This is a welcome sign from business owners who now, after some delays, are getting access to much-needed relief. Small businesses also tell us that they need protections from legal traps as they re-open to customers and bring employees back to work.”

From Holly Wade, NFIB Director of Research & Policy Analysis

“After the second round of funding, many more small businesses were able to apply and receive funding from these federal loan programs. Now, business owners need guidance on how they can spend these funds in order for them to be forgiven.”
