Stefanik supports PPP deadline extension

WASHINGTON, D.C.— On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Schuylerville) cosponsored a bill that would extend the covered period for the Paycheck Protection Program to June 30.

According to a press release, the current deadline to apply for funds is March 31.

“More than $128 billion for small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program remains, but the deadline to apply is less than three weeks away,” Stefanik said in a statement.

“North Country small businesses are still hurting, and it’s absolutely essential this bill is passed to give them more time to determine their loan amount eligibility, file an application, resolve any potential issues and access these critical funds.”
