The SBA and KY Gov. Andy Beshear have worked to qualify the entire state for SBA disaster certification. With that certification now in place, small businesses, for-profit contractors and private non-profits anywhere in Kentucky that have been harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic are eligible to apply for low-interest SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans. SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans applications can be completed and filed online at www.sba.gov/disaster.
The SBA is also mobilizing call centers to assist in the loan-application process. Call 1-800-659-2955 (TTY: 1-800-877-8339) or e-mail email@example.com.
