Nearly 270 businesses and nonprofit organizations in the Roaring Fork Valley received loans of $150,000 or more from the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program after the COVID-19 crisis hit, according to data released by the Small Business Association.

The loans were used as a lifeline by borrowers ranging from Aspen Valley Hospital and multiple dental and medical clinics to construction firms, and from arts organizations such as Aspen Art Museum to restaurants. Several prominent law firms and architectural businesses throughout the valley also obtained loans.

The loans were approved but there may be cases where the borrower decided not to collect the funds, according to the SBA.

About two-thirds of the loans awarded in the Roaring Fork Valley, 180 of 269, were in the range of $150,000 to $350,000, according to an analysis of the federal data by The Aspen Times.

There were 77 loans between $350,000 and $1 million and another 10 between $1 million and $2 million.

There was only one loan between $2 million and $5 million. That was to Clark’s Market Inc., a chain anchored in Aspen. Clark’s said it would use the loan to retain 402 jobs throughout its chain, according to the information released by the SBA.

There was only one loan in the valley in the highest category, $5 million to $10 million. That was to Aspen Valley Hospital, which said it would use the loan to retain 500 jobs.

The Paycheck Protection Program was rolled out by the federal government in April to soften the blow to the economy from business shutdowns at the start of the coronavirus crisis. The program provided eight weeks of funds primarily to keep employees on payroll and from filing for unemployment. Other allowed uses are interest on mortgages, rent and utilities. Loans that aren’t forgiven will have an interest rate of 1%.

While the SBA oversees the program, banks provided the loans and helped clients with the paperwork. Representatives of several local banks said in April that the vast majority of their clients planned to use the funds primarily for payroll.

The SBA data showed that 125 of the 279 loan recipients in the Roaring Fork Valley didn’t indicate how many jobs the loans would be used to retain or they marked zero jobs.

Following is the list of the loan recipients in Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs. The job retention is listed when it was included in the SBA data.
