I am noticing that updates and questions about relief programs are slowing down.  It seems that businesses and organizations are getting laser focused on re-opening and what that means.  Moreover, if you look at the most recent PPP lending numbers through 5/23/2020, there is still funding left.  The average loan size in round two declined from to $61k per borrower as of 5/23 from $64k as of 5/16.  Also, the total amount of approved loans continued to shrink from $171B as of 5/16 to $169B on 5/23.  See my attached spreadsheet for the updated loan numbers.

The optimist in me says that things are settling down and must be moving to “Normal”.  Let’s hope the second half of 2020 is better than the first half.  Regardless, you choose whether you want to participate in a recession.

Here are some other things that may be important or relevant for you:
