The U.S. Department of the Treasury on Monday released the names of businesses that received more than $150,000 in federal loans through the Paycheck Protection Program.

For-profit construction and manufacturing companies, along with health care entities, took some of the largest multimillion-dollar loans in the St. Louis area. 

More than 90,000 Missouri businesses received federal loans to help meet payroll costs during the coronavirus pandemic. Businesses reported that the loans supported about 900,000 jobs in the state, accounting for 85% of the state’s small business payroll. 

Nationwide, the average loan was close to $107,000, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. But some loans were as large as $10 million. 

More than 30 businesses in St. Louis received between $5 million and $10 million, including the Christian content producer Joyce Meyer Ministries and the Armstrong Teasdale law firm. St. Louis received at least twice as many loans in that range as Kansas City. 

Some nonprofit organizations in the region received loans worth between $2 million and $5 million. Those include the Missouri Botanical Garden and St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. A number of universities as well as private high schools Westminster Christian Academy and St. Louis University High School also received loans in that range. 

The Paycheck Protection Program disbursed nearly 5 million loans nationwide, totaling more than $521 billion. Among those, 67% of loans were for less than $50,000, and 86% were for less than $150,000.
