These industries alone received at least 14% of the total amount loaned to Maryland businesses and nonprofits, or at least $1.3 billion

Because the Small Business Administration reported larger loan amounts as a range between two numbers, precise amounts cannot be determined.

Corporations and LLCs received the majority of the federal loans, while nonprofit groups, which are typically not eligible for Small Business Administration loans, received 4.3% of the loans, or 3,499.

86 businesses in Maryland were approved for the top loan range of $5 million to $10 million. Of those, 44 are in Central Maryland.

Howard County had the highest number of such loans in region with 14, including loans to contractors, manufacturers, and tech and financial firms.
