Mukiltean of the Day

The Mukiltean of June 11, 2020, is Laura Crawford, who, along with others, organized and fostered Mukilteo’s Teen Lounge at Pointe of Grace Lutheran Church.

Laura worked tirelessly from the inception of Teen Lounge to provide a safe place for high school and middle school students to just “hang out” for three hours, one day a week. She enabled food contributions from a variety of local businesses so that there was always plenty for the kids to eat while playing games, etc. while at Teen Lounge. She also knew which kids were likely not getting enough to eat at home, and often sent several home with extra food she had saved for them. She always enjoyed talking with the kids at Teen Lounge about their day, and how they were doing in school, but was never intrusive. She was a quiet mentor and role model for all of the kids, as well as the adult volunteers, at Teen Lounge. Truly, an incredible Mukiltean!

Good Changes to PPP

According to a June 6 report from the US SBA, 93,880 Washington state-based businesses and nonprofits have received over $12B in mostly forgivable loans that are saving jobs across the state. There is more than $130 billion in PPP funding still available

The US Senate passed the PPP Small Business Relief Fix Bill. HR 7010, previously passed by the US House, is now on the way to the President for signature. The Bill responds to concerns that the PPP, potentially a grant if employers met established criteria, was so restrictive as to make compliance a difficult task. The bill authorizes the following changes:

Extends covered loan period from eight to 24 weeks.
Ensures full access to employer payroll tax deferment for businesses that take PPP loans.
Relaxes the requirement that PPP loans be spent on payroll costs from 75% to 60%.
Provides a ‘rehiring safe harbor’ for businesses to still qualify for loan forgiveness if they are unable to rehire employees due to effects of enhanced Unemployment Insurance.
Establishes a ‘safe harbor’ for businesses to qualify for loan forgiveness if they cannot return to full business operations due to state orders or restrictions.
