Still Waiting to Hear on your SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Application?

We hear that some businesses have applied for Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) from the U.S. Small Business Administration but have not heard from the SBA whether their applications have been approved or denied. Staff at the Economic Development Collaborative can contact the SBA on your behalf to inquire about the status of your application. To take advantage of this free service, E-mail your full name and application number (which should begin with a 3) to info@edcollaborative.com with the subject: "SBA EIDL Loan Status Unknown."

If you have have received an EIDL advance, but not heard anything further from the SBA, you should consider the loan advance as status of receipt of your application. The SBA continues to process an unprecedented number of applications at this time.

What to Do: Unemployment Overpayments
