SBA Reopens EIDL Disaster Loan Portal to All

SBA has reopened the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance program portal to all eligible applicants experiencing economic impacts due to COVID-19. Important points to consider are:

  • EIDL assistance can be used to cover payroll and inventory, pay debt or other expenses. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses, 2.75% for non-profits and the term is for up to 30 years.
  • The EIDL Advance can provide up to $10,000 ($1,000 per employee) in emergency funds to businesses that do not have to be repaid.
  • SBA’s EIDL and EIDL Advance are just one piece of the expanded focus of the federal government’s coordinated response.
  • Forgiveness is automatic on an EIDL Advance and if a borrower got both an EIDL Advance and PPP loan, the EIDL Advance is deducted from the forgivable amount of a PPP loan.
