As the pandemic shows no signs of abating, many of us are wondering if the spread of the delta variant of the virus will necessitate a return to remote learning this fall and, if so, which communities are at greatest risk of exacerbated inequalities. To answer these questions, we’ve added new data to PolicyMap: school remote learning and reopening rates for the 2020-2021 school year, as well as weekly updates on remote/hybrid/in-person school tracker data for fall and winter 2021.

Concern over the state of small business, devastated by mandated lockdowns and restrictions, continues to rise. Understanding the loan programs available to small businesses is increasingly important in economic recovery. Data on the SBA’s most popular loan programs – 7(a) and 504 – is now on PolicyMap.
The pandemic is ongoing, and many small businesses are still in need of assistance. Data can help inform continued response to the COVID-19 crisis. Understanding and evaluating the impact of the PPP loan program is critical, and tracking PPP investments and business closure could identify gaps in the program’s initial reach.
