We know many of our Noblesville businesses have begun the application process for Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) as well as the Paycheck Protection Program forgivable loans. The need is great and so the volume of applicants is great. We encourage you to have patience with the process.

Congresswomen Brooks has advice that you will find helpful in navigating the SBA below.

We also want to thank Mayor Jensen and the City Council for their support of local business through the Small Business Resilience Grants. Grant awards were announced today totaling $250,000 to 47 local businesses throughout Noblesville. It is likely that these grants will make the difference for several employers. See the complete list below.

The Chamber has established a small business support line to assist businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. If you need connection to resources, information, agencies, or mentors call/text 317-764-0282 or email us at We do not have all the answers, but we promise to connect you to those who do.

We are here to help.

Hang in there,

Paycheck Protection Program

The Paycheck Protection Program prioritizes millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $349 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses. Review the resources provided by the U.S. Department of Treasury below and visit their webpage for additional information.

Congress has approved $350 billion in emergency loans for small businesses to help them keep workers employed. In fact, if small businesses maintain or later restore their payrolls, they may not have to repay some — or possibly any — of the loan.

Here’s  a guide and checklist from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to help your small business through the process. 
SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL)
  • The SBA EIDL program can provide low-interest loans of up to $2M to businesses and private non-profits.
  • EIDLs may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills. 
  • The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses without credit available elsewhere. The interest rate for non-profits is 2.75%.
  • EIDLs have long-term repayment options, up to a maximum of 30 years. Terms are determined on a case-by-case basis, based on borrower's ability to repay.
