More than 140,000 companies in Missouri and Kansas received loans under the federal Paycheck Protection Loan program, ranging from restaurants and franchisees to car dealerships to nursing care facilities.

While most businesses received $150,000 in loans or less to alleviate the coronavirus’ economic fallout, about 2,300 companies got $1 million or more. Data released this week by the Small Business Administration shows restaurants, physician’s offices and car dealers got the highest number of large loans in Kansas, while in Missouri, religious organizations and nursing care facilities topped the list.

In total, the program supported 1.5 million jobs in Kansas and Missouri, and the low-interest loans can be forgiven fully if a company meets requirements — including using at least 60% of the money for payroll costs.

Below are the companies awarded between $5 million and $10 million; the new data doesn’t include businesses that have since returned the funding.
