AAU Joins Letter to Support Expansion of the Paycheck Protection and Main Street Lending Programs

AAU joined ACE and 65 other higher education organizations on a letter to congressional leaders to support the changes to the Paycheck Protection and the Main Street Lending Programs that will increase college and university access to the critical relief programs. The organizations also request that Congress consider making these programs available for all small colleges regardless of location and exempting student workers from employee calculations for any new loan program that includes a maximum employee threshold. The letter notes that these changes would help colleges and universities, which are often the largest employers in their communities and often their states, recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
