Rep. Jason Crow Launches Survey to Gather Data on Small Business Programs
Representative Jason Crow (CO-06) has launched a survey for small businesses in the 6th Congressional District to share their experiences accessing the Small Business Administration COVID-19 loan and grant programs, including their flagship Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL). The data from the survey will be compiled into a final report and shared with the House Small Business Committee, the Small Business Administration, and Department of the Treasury, and used to help guide Congressman Crow’s small business legislative agenda.
“My office has been fielding calls non-stop from small business owners in the district who are struggling to get timely access to PPP and EIDL programs,” said Congressman Jason Crow. “These calls provide a snapshot of the problems small business owners are facing but we need a more complete picture. This survey is designed to better represent the situation on the ground here in Colorado. We want to hear from small business owners so we can be the best advocate for them and push for the necessary reforms from the SBA and administration as a whole.”
In April, Congressman Crow testified in front of the House Small Business Committee about the need to prevent misuse of the loan and grant programs by publicly-traded companies, stating “...Oversight of important loan and grant programs is one of the most important roles of this committee...I look forward to working with all the members of this committee to address any misuse of these relief programs and ensure that transparency and accountability are hallmarks of our nation’s response to this crisis and Congress’ actions going forward.”
The survey can be found here.
