NORTHWEST CORNER — This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the federal government established its Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) via the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act aka the CARES Act. The $669-billion business loan program, implemented by the federal government’s Small Business Administration (SBA), was enacted to help businesses, self-employed workers, nonprofit organizations, tribal businesses, and sole proprietors continue to pay their employees. The loan may be forgiven partially or fully if the business receiving PPP aid keeps its employee counts and employee wages stable.

The following is a list of local businesses and organizations that received PPP funds in our coverage area of Barkhamsted, New Hartford, Norfolk, Torrington, and Winsted va the SBA database (there were no Colebrook businesses listed in the database):
