SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL)
If you are considering to apply for SBA disaster relief funding we understanding the process can be somewhat daunting. We've linked SBA's 3-step application process as well as a loan assistance application guide (as a note, we continue to add helpful tips to this guide as local businesses are applying--if there is anything you would recommend we add please let us know).
SBA Loan Advance: $10,000 EIDL Advance
We know you are facing challenging times in this current health crisis. The U.S. Small Business Administration is committed to help bring relief to small businesses and nonprofit organizations suffering because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which provides additional assistance for small business owners and non-profits.
Included in the CARES Act is the opportunity for small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000.
The loan advance will provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. This Advance may be available even if your EIDL application was declined or is still pending.
Funds will be made available within three days of a successful application, and this loan advance will not have to be repaid.
In order to qualify for the Advance, you must submit this new application even if you previously submitted an EIDL application. Applying for the Advance will not impact the status or slow your existing EIDL application.
This application is quick, the only "numbers" you will need to initially provide are:
In the third step be sure to check the box that you would like to be considered for the loan advance, enter in bank information, and then submit.
