Haunted Attractions are more then fun, games and demons

In the creative community, Haunted Houses – and seasonal events – create jobs and contribute to local economies. With many facing closures and struggling this season, a coalition was formed to help Congress understand that the Paycheck Protection Program requires additional adjustment for these small businesses.

According to the PPP regs, seasonal employers are allowed usage of any 12 week period between May 1, 2019 and Sept 15, 2019. These dates disqualify many Haunted Houses as they start operations mid-September.

“I don’t know if folks imagined that the Covid crisis would extend this long when the rules were written”, said Aaron Cutler, one of the lobbyists representing the coalition.

The goal is to have the additional dates span in any extension of the loan program, which may include holiday-season businesses as well.
