As a small business owner, you have options to help you through this difficult time.  The 2 main loan options are:

  • Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs)
  • SBA Cares Act Paycheck Protection Program Loans (PPPs)

We’ve shared some information on each of these programs below, there is also a helpful article on Nav on COVID disaster loans vs. paycheck protection loans.

Paycheck Protection Program

  • Loans are up 2.5 times your average monthly payroll.
  • The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll.
  • SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.
  • You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. Other regulated lenders will be available to make these loans once they are approved and enrolled in the program. You should consult with your local lender as to whether it is participating in the program.
  • Lenders may begin processing loan applications as soon as April 3, 2020. The Paycheck Protection Program will be available through June 30, 2020.
