Notice: SBA suspended taking EIDL
or PPP Loan
applications as appropriated funds are depleted
SBA announced that due to a lapse in new appropriations, the SBA is unable to accept new applications at this time for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) – COVID-19 related assistance program. Applicants who have already submitted their applications will continue to be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Congress is in discussions about allocating more money to these programs and we are hopeful that will come soon. We recommend businesses that qualify for these programs consult with their accountants and banking institutions and be prepared to file quickly should new funding become available. Please check back regularly on the SBA website for Coronavirus Relief Options
and look for updates on new funding and whether these programs will reopen.
