EIDL and Advance Program Reopens

The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan has been closed since May 4, 2020, to allow agriculture businesses to apply for relief. On June 15, 2020, the portal has been reopened for eligible applicants to apply for both the SBA’s EIDL and Advance Program. The Economic Injury Disaster Loan application provides long-term, low-interest loans to help small businesses and non-profits survive this difficult time. In addition, the EIDL advance program could potentially provide up to $10,000 ($1,000 per employee) in grant funding for businesses. The EIDL advance emergency grant is not required to be repaid.
