Description: In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories are eligible to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000.

The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing. 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.

  • Loan payments will be deferred for six months.
  • If you maintain your workforce, SBA will forgive the portion of the loan proceeds that are used to cover the first 8 weeks of payroll and certain other expenses following loan origination.

Paycheck Protection Program FAQs for Small Businesses

Where can I apply for the Paycheck Protection Program?
You can apply for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) at any lending institution that is
approved to participate in the program through the existing U.S. Small Business Administration
(SBA) 7(a) lending program and additional lenders approved by the Department of Treasury. This
could be the bank you already use, or a nearby bank. There are thousands of banks that already
participate in the SBA’s lending programs, including numerous community banks. You do not
have to visit any government institution to apply for the program.
