Financial grant

On 11 June 2021, the U.S. Small Business Administration forgave a loan under the Payment Protection Programme (PPP) worth USD 10.1 million to Emergeortho P.a., a corporation located in Durham, NC.

According to the North American Industry Classification System, the company operates in the field of Offices of Physicians (except Mental Health Specialists).

The PPP is a programme introduced by the US federal government in response to the Covid-19 pandemic to provide liquidity of up to USD 10 million for affected businesses and help them keep their workforce. In this regard, the federal government provides unsecured loans of up to USD 10 million with terms ranging between 24 and 60 months. The scheme was open until 31 May 2021 and distributed 11.8 million loans worth USD 800 billion.

A state act in the GTA database is assessed solely in terms of the extent to which its implementation affects foreign commercial interests. On this metric, the financial aid granted here is discriminatory.

Since the original PPP loan was forgiven, it is recorded in the Global Trade Alert database as a financial grant.
