Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Program

Important Update:

EIDLs are administered and approved directly by the Small Business Administration (SBA).  The SBA’s COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program deadline is extended until December 31, 2021. Please note that the EIDL Advance grant is no longer available. 

The Targeted EIDL Advance provides businesses located in low-income communities with additional funds to ensure small business continuity, adaptation, and resiliency. 

Advance funds of up to $10,000 will be available to applicants located in low-income communities who previously received an EIDL Advance for less than $10,000, or those who applied but received no funds due to lack of available program funding.

Applicants do not need to take any action at this time. The Small Business Administration (SBA) will reach out to those who qualify.
