What we know so far:  

The Federal Emergency Declaration activated the SBA's Economic Injury Disaster Loan program (EIDL). The specifics regarding which counties in Georgia will be eligible, or the state as a whole, is not available at this time, though the process is expected to be clarified shortly. 
The following documents will be required by the SBA for EIDL loans in order to evaluate economic impact of disaster:
  1.  Profit and Loss and Cash Flow Statements for 2019 and 2020 on annual basis and year to date basis.
  2. Tax returns from the past 3 years, both personal and busines
In addition to the above, we suggest contacting your lending institution to see if relief programs are being offered during this time for delaying payments or interest only payments.

the EIDL program:
