Yesterday, we hosted a webinar on Understanding the SBA Disaster Loan Program for businesses affected by the COVID-19 epidemic. The number of people who are interested exceeded our expectations and we will do our best to answer as many questions as we can. If you have technical questions about the loan refer to the resource partners below.
We will add resources to this page as we get them. For now, please refer to the resources below to help you navigate the process.
For microlenders and business service providers
For small businesses
- New! If you haven’t already, apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan and you are eligible for an advance of up to $10,000, whether or not you are approved for a loan. For more information and to apply, click here. If you applied before March 30, 2020, then you need to re-apply if you want the advance. If you were a first wave applicant, you should have received an email on March 30 that instructed you to re-apply.
