JourneyCare and Liability Company Hoogland Foods are among 148 small businesses and nonprofits in Glenview that applied for loans of at least $150,000 through the federal Payroll Protection Program, the U.S. Treasury Department indicated this week.

Those two businesses sought loans in the top tier of the program -- $5 million to $10 million.


The program was approved by Congress this spring as a way to decrease the pandemic's impact on the economy, and the loans become forgivable, in whole or in part, if the employers refrain from cutting jobs.

In other words, for most of the businesses, the money turns into a federal grant, financed by U.S. taxpayers.

Other top tier applicants in the area include the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe and Pinstripes in Northbrook.

The list of applicants released by the government did not reveal the precise amount each business sought, only ranges. Nor did it indicate whether any of the loan applications were rejected.

The amount sought by the 148 Glenview businesses, churches and other nonprofits identified in Monday's federal document release totals somewhere between $59.1 million and $140.8 million.

Based on the employee counts businesses listed in their applications, the program could spare as many as 8,540 jobs in those 148 Glenview businesses. Several applications did not list a number of workers so the job savings actually could be slightly more.

However, the jobs are not safeguarded once the grant program expires later this fall.

The government also offered loans for less than $150,000, but it is impossible to know how many Glenview businesses sought those. The government so far has refused to identify those smaller-loan applicants; the secrecy is being contested in a lawsuit filed by several news organizations.

In its application, JourneyCare identified itself as a nursing care facility that employs 500 people. Hoogland identified itself as limited service restaurants that employ 500 people.
