In just over one year, the federal government delivered more than twenty five million dollars in economic relief to Wellsville. The “PPP” cash comes with very few strings attached and in most cases, the funding will not need to be repaid. Non-profit businesses collected a large percentage of the funding, Jones Memorial Hospital topped the list at over 4.5 million dollars, and the Allegany Steuben ARC received just under 2 million dollars.
The PPP program was a creation of the Trump administration, providing two rounds of funding to any business or individual claiming hardship due to the pandemic.
