Oversight of the Small Business Administration and Department of Treasury Pandemic Programs
Friday, July 17, 2020 | 10:30 AM
The Committee on Small Business will hold a hearing entitled “Oversight of the Small Business Administration and Department of Treasury Pandemic Programs.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:30 AM (EST) on Friday, July 17, 2020 and will take place in room 2118 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Members who wish to participate remotely may do so via Cisco Webex, information to be provided separately.
In light of the pandemic, Congress acted swiftly to make certain small employers could use the existing SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program to access much needed financial assistance and created the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) at SBA, which has been implemented with the assistance of the Department of Treasury. The hearing gives Members the ability to hear from administration officials about the interpretation, implementation, and effectiveness of the programs in providing economic assistance to employers throughout the ongoing pandemic.
