Americans for Tax Reform and Americans for Tax Reform Foundation Statement on PPP Loan

Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) did not apply for or receive any grant or loan from the Paycheck Protection Program, designed to keep people employed during the pandemic.  ATR never opposed enactment of the program however, viewing it as compensation for a government taking during the shutdown.

Americans for Tax Reform Foundation (ATRF)—a legally and financially separate research and educational 501(c)3—was badly hurt by the government shutdown. It applied for and received a loan and has as a consequence been able to maintain its employees without laying anyone off. ATRF does not engage in lobbying.
