SBA Reopens Portal for Economic Injury Disaster Loans & Advances

June 18, 2020

The U.S. Small Business Administration has reopened the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance program portal to small businesses and non-profits experiencing economic hardship due to COVID-19.

The loans can be used to pay debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of economic disruption due to COVID-19, and that are not already covered by a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan. The EIDL interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profits.  In addition, the SBA is offering loans with long repayment terms, up to a maximum of 30 years. The first payment is deferred for one year.

The EIDL Advance will provide up to $10,000 ($1,000 per employee) of emergency economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. These emergency grants do not have to be repaid and small businesses may receive an advance even if they are not approved for a loan.
