Research financial options that are available to assist your business.

SBA Financial Assistance Information

Paycheck Protection Program - These are emergency small business loans that may be forgiven and will be available to borrowers that maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore after. Loans will be up to $10M, depending on your monthly payroll. Loan forgiveness will be dependent on the payroll at the start of the loan and completion of the loan period (approximately through June 30). Businesses that have laid off staff may still be eligible if they bring staff back on at the start of the loan period. These loans will be provided through traditional financial partners and not directly from SBA.

Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program - Low interest loans up to $2M for small businesses and nonprofits; up to a year deferral. Guidance for businesses and employers, government contracting, and local assistance information. Live agents are available to guide you through the process at 1-800-659-2955.

Existing Disaster Loans
- If you had an existing SBA Disaster Loan prior to COVID-19 (e.g. loan for fire declaration), you can now automatically defer your loan to the end of 2020.

SBA Express Bridge Loans
- Allows small businesses who currently have a business relationship with an SBA Express Lender to access up to $25,000 with less paperwork. Small businesses waiting on approval for a Disaster Loan may be able to access this Bridge Loan while waiting on a decision.

Existing 7a SBA Loans - Borrowers may request deferral up to 3 months from their lender for those with a traditional 7a SBA Loan, with another possible extension to 6 months. The SBA has authorized lenders to take this action. Borrowers need to contact their lender to negotiate. Important: this is not an automatic deferral.
