Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL)
The EIDL is for businesses to pay for operational expenses through this uncertain time. This loan is administered by the SBA and includes a $10,000 emergency grant to be made within three days of an application.
These grants do not have to be repaid as long as funds are used for:
Providing paid sick leave to employees unable to work due to the direct effect of the COVID–19
Maintaining payroll to retain employees during business disruptions or substantial slowdowns
Meeting increased costs to obtain materials unavailable from the applicant’s original source due to interrupted supply chains
Making rent or mortgage payments
Repaying obligations that cannot be met due to revenue losses
EIDLs are working capital loans, up to $2 million, which may be used for fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills. These loans include a 10-year repayment at 3.75% (or 2.75% if you’re a non-profit). To qualify, you must be:
A small business, cooperative, ESOP or tribal business with 500 or fewer employees
An individual who operates under as a sole proprietorship, with or without employees, or as an independent contractor, or
A private non-profit or small agricultural cooperative
Your business must be directly affected by COVID-19
To apply or for more information, please visit the
Small Business Administration Portal.
All loans are subject to credit approval and program guidelines.
PPP Loan Forgiveness
How can I request loan forgiveness?
If your existing PPP Loan is $150,000 or greater, you should have already received a link to complete your forgiveness application. If your existing PPP loan is less than $150,000, the forgiveness process is not open at this time. As the SBA rules associated with the new originations and how forgiveness will be administered, more details will follow.
In the meantime, please continue to prepare your supporting documentation per SBA guidance, saving in PDF format, if possible, to ensure easy uploading to the SBA's digital platform when forgiveness applications are ready to begin processing. Unfortunately, no paper applications will be accepted.
