Provide PPP funding for Chambers of Commerce

Chambers of Commerce have worked tirelessly to support local small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have been a reliable source of information, clarification, guidance and support through the daily changes that small businesses face.

Most Chambers of Commerce rely on income from programs and events to build budgets that enable them to provide the services that help small businesses thrive. In today's economy small businesses lean on Chambers of Commerce to help them survive. And while measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 remain necessary, Chambers are not able to hold income generating public programs and events.

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is an ideal tool to support the Chambers, but they are currently excluded from receiving these funds. I'm writing to ask that you expand PPP to include Chambers of Commerce that have been impacted financially by the pandemic crisis. Please support them so they can continue to provide struggling small businesses across the country with resources they need to weather this storm.
