Disaster Relief for Small NC Businesses
Last month, Governor Cooper declared a State of Emergency for the State of North Carolina, which activated the State Emergency Operations Center to help agencies coordinate the response to COVID-19. Knowing that the Coronavirus is already impacting businesses, Governor Cooper additionally requested that the U.S. Small Business Administration grant a disaster declaration for business owners in North Carolina facing economic losses. The declaration would provide disaster loans to impacted businesses to help fulfill financial obligations and operating expenses. The request is for assistance to affected businesses across the state. 
$2 Trillion Stimulus Bill
On Friday March 27th, the House passed the Senate’s $2 trillion dollar Coronavirus stimulus package to inject financial support to individuals directly, small businesses, impacted large businesses, hospitals, and state and local governments. 

The Stimulus Package will:

  • Increase unemployment payments, extending the benefit to those who typically do not qualify.
  • Provide for direct payments to Americans, depending on income levels, which should arrive in as little to three weeks after the bill is made law. (See: Direct payments to Americans)
  • Provide $100 billion to hospitals;
  • Provide $350 billion to small businesses;
  • Provide $500 billion to corporations, including airline companies and cruise lines;
  • Provide $150 billion for state and local stimulus funds

We are grateful for this relief which will be brought to business owners, to individuals, and to local and state governments in this great time of need and uncertainty.
Small Business Administration
Disaster Assistance in Response to the Coronavirus
The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Upon a request received from a state’s or territory’s Governor, the SBA will issue under its own authority, as provided by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act that was recently signed by the President, an Economic Injury Disaster Loan declaration.

The declaration then makes loans available statewide to small businesses and private, nonprofit organizations to help alleviate economic injury caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This will apply to current and future disaster assistance declarations related to Coronavirus.

Small business owners in all U.S. states and territories are currently eligible to apply for a loan advance  of up to $10,000 due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
