The Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL)
program provides working capital to small businesses and some private non-profits suffering substantial economic injury as a result of COVID-19.
These loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses without credit available elsewhere; businesses with credit available elsewhere are not eligible. The interest rate for non-profits is 2.75%. SBA offers loans with long-term repayments in order to keep payments affordable, up to a maximum of 30 years. Terms are determined on a case-by-case basis, based upon each borrower’s ability to repay; you must apply directly with the SBA.
