A Department of Energy contractor that applied for and received a $1.3 million Paycheck Protection Program loan has, together with its owners, agreed to pay nearly $3 million in restitution and penalties to resolve their liability under the False Claims Act.  HPM Corporation and owners Holly and Grover Cleveland Mooers admitted that they submitted materially false statements to the Small Business Administration in order to obtain the loan and induce a forgiveness of the loan.  However, instead of using the funds on payroll, as they had represented, they transferred the entire amount to their personal account.  USAO EDWA
