Frick’s Meat Products Inc., Magnet LLC and Melton Machine & Control Co. were among nine companies in Franklin County that received federal loans of between $2.5 million and $5 million through the Treasury Department’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). 

The Small Business Administration, which administered the program, released the names of businesses that received more than $150,000 — the most complete look at the recipients to date — on Monday. The loans were made through the CARES Act to help businesses keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 crisis. 

More than 200 Franklin County businesses received federal loans. The local list of recipients includes manufacturers, construction companies, restaurants, law firms and churches.

According to the SBA, the majority of PPP loans issued in Franklin County were in the $150,000-$350,000 range. Of the 207 loans made here, 125 fell into that category.

Sixty-two local companies received loans in the $350,000 to $1 million category; 11 companies received loans in amounts between $1 million to $2 million; and nine businesses received between $2.5 million to $5 million. 

No companies from Franklin County received more than $5 million.

The data released Mon

day did not specify exact loan amounts.

The government reported more than 90,000 Missouri businesses received federal loans as part of the CARES Act. Nationwide, the Treasury Department’s Paycheck Protection Program authorized $520 billion for nearly 5 million mostly small businesses and nonprofits, according to the Associated Press.

The average loan was close to $107,000, according to the SBA. But some loans were as large as $10 million. 

Economists generally credit the program with preventing the job market meltdown this spring from becoming even worse. More than 22 million jobs were lost in March and April. But roughly one-third of them were regained in May and June — a faster rebound than many analysts had expected.

The government acted quickly in early April, with the Treasury lending the first $349 billion in just two weeks.
