Interactive Map- Disparities in the Distribution of the Paycheck Protection Program in CA

Explore our interactive map to see the distribution of PPP funds to small businesses across neighborhoods in California. They are part of a larger study that finds that PPP funds did not reach communities of color, widening pre-pandemic inequalities between white and ethnic neighborhoods.


This interactive map shows how loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) were distributed across neighborhoods in California. You can select and unselect three layers to see  one of these three indicators:

  • PPP dollars per 100 residents in the neighborhood
  • Jobs retained through PPP loans per 100 residents in the neighborhood
  • Neighborhoods where a racial or ethnic group accounts for at least 60% of the population
