The White House adviser was listed as a vice president of his family's real estate company until 2016.

The family of White House adviser Stephen Miller reportedly received up to $1 million in coronavirus relief through the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program, Small Business Administration data show.

  • The Daily Dot reported that “Miller’s family owns Cordary Incorporated, a real estate company based in Southern California.”
  • Miller was listed as a “vice president of “California Villages,” the public brand name for Cordary Inc, until 2016.”
  • According to the report, Cordary Inc., which is owned and operated by Miller’s parents, Michael and Miriam Miller, “received the first loan, from Pacific Western Bank, on April 30” worth up to $1 million.
  • Then on June 30, “they potentially received a second loan from Wells Fargo...for up to $350,000.”
  • The Daily Dot noted that PPP loans are forgivable so long as they are used for payroll, rent and utilities.

According to program rules, businesses can only receive one PPP loan. It is possible the Miller family applied through two lenders, and only received one of the loans.

  • The report also noted that “Miller’s parents are longtime Trump supporters and Republican donors.”

A White House spokesperson told the Daily Dot that the White House was not involved with the loan or its approval process, and Cordary Inc. did not respond to requests for comment on possibly taking more than one loan.
