Sherrill Launches Survey On COVID-19 Small Business Programs

By on April 29, 2020

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ11) today launched a survey for small businesses in the 11th District to share their experiences with the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) and Grants. The data from this survey will be published on Rep. Sherrill’s website, and will be shared with the U.S. Small Business Administration, U.S. Department of the Treasury, U.S. House Committee on Small Business, and other stakeholders in the community.

“My team and I are hearing every day from small businesses across the district who are frustrated and uncertain of their ability to get support from the PPP and EIDL programs,” said Rep. Sherrill. “We are launching this survey to collect additional information from our small businesses on what the process has been like on the ground in New Jersey, the major roadblocks to accessing loans, and what suggestions small businesses have to improve the programs. I encourage the community to share their experiences with us so we can use this data to better serve our small businesses struggling in the face of this crisis.”

Rep. Sherrill testified last week in front of the House Committee on Small Business about the need to improve these programs. “It’s not sufficient to merely add more funding,” she said to the committee. “We must make it easier for businesses to access these funds and live up to the intention of the program we created.
