Reveal Investigation Finds Widespread Racial Inequity Among PPP Loan Recipients
On this edition of Your Call, we're discussing a new Reveal investigation, which found widespread racial disparities with how Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans were distributed across the US.
The program has injected more than $770 billion into businesses since last April, but the investigation found that many small businesses in communities of color were left out. In the Los Angeles area, businesses in white neighborhoods received loans at a far higher rate than in communities of color.
