EIDL Program and Application Forms

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) offers low-interest federal disaster loans to small businesses in designated areas suffering economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus. The SBA is encouraging businesses to complete the application for the U.S. SBA Disaster Loan while seeking other lines of credit from other sources, including the SBA Express Bridge Loan (details below). Eligible entities may qualify for loans up to $2 million. A $10,000 advance on the loan* is available to help businesses as well. The interest rates for this disaster are 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profit organizations with terms up to 30 years. Eligibility for these working capital loans are based on the size and type of business and its financial resources.

*The loan advance will provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. Funds will be made available within three days of a successful application, and this loan advance will not have to be repaid.

If you have trouble accessing the website  or have questions you may call 1-800-659-2955 or (TTY) 1-800-877-8339.
