Additional information

The National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU), in an update about their Virtual Congressional Caucus, said that SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza “…called credit unions ‘frontline heroes’ as it relates to saving the economy and putting the country on a strong path to recovery. She highlighted that credit unions issued more than 200,000 PPP loans, with 80 percent being less than $50,000 – meaning that they went to the smallest businesses hit hardest by the pandemic. She also touted that credit unions' PPP loans accounted for more than 1 million jobs.”
