SBA Lending in Response to COVID-19

As of March 24 at 6AM: Low-interest Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) are available to small businesses and private nonprofit organizations affected by the loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, loan amounts up to $2 million are available at low interest rates for a maximum term of 30 years. EIDLs are processed directly by the SBA. For more information and to apply:

We recommend having the following on-hand when you apply:

  • Completed application (SBA Form 5)
  • Tax Information Authorization (IRS Form 4506T)

 Along with the following for the applicant, principals and affiliates:

  • Complete copies of the most recent Federal income tax returns for the applicant business; and an explanation if not available
  • Personal Financial Statement (SBA Form 413)
  • Schedule of Liabilities (SBA Form 2202)

Due to increased volume, you may experience delays while navigating the SBA website. To help avoid issues, they recommend visiting the site outside of typical business hours.

We are awaiting news on the passage of an economic stimulus bill which we hope will provide more options for banks to support small businesses impacted by the pandemic with SBA loans. We will update our website with information as it becomes available.

In the meantime, our SBA lenders are here and ready for your call if you have any questions you would like to explore.
