Loan Programs


 

Economic Injury Disaster Loans
You must repay

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) provides low-interest loans to businesses and nonprofit organizations that experience a loss of revenue due to COVID-19. Loans may be up to an amount equivalent to six months working capital.

Who is eligible?
Small businesses and nonprofit organizations.

How to apply:
Apply online directly to the SBA

Paycheck Protection Program Loans
You may not need to repay

Small businesses and non-profit organizations may be eligible for federally guaranteed loans to cover payroll expenses as well as certain other business expenses, such as interest on mortgage, rent, and utilities. The Paycheck Protection Program was created under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) of 2020. For the first round of loans, eligible businesses were defined as those with fewer than 500 employees, with some exceptions. Under a new law, to be eligible for a second draw, a business must have no more than 300 employees and demonstrate at least a 25 percent reduction in gross revenues between comparable quarters in 2019 and 2020.

Borrowers may be eligible for loan forgiveness if funds are used for eligible payroll costs, payments on business mortgage interest payments, rent, or utilities. If you do not apply for forgiveness, you will have to repay the loan.

Who is eligible?

  • Small businesses (Generally those with under 500 employees for a first draw; under the new law, businesses with less than 300 employees may be eligible for a second draw.)
  • Nonprofit organizations, veterans organizations, tribal businesses, self-employed individuals, and independent contractors may also be eligible

How to apply:
Contact your bank or SBA-approved lender. Get additional assistance from your local Small Business Development Center.

Grants


 

Provider Relief Fund
You may not need to repay

The purpose of this fund is to support healthcare providers in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. The federal government originally allocated $175 billion in payments for distribution through the Provider Relief Fund. A new law, passed in December 2020, adds $3 billion to the existing Provider Relief Fund. Money may be distributed to reimburse healthcare providers for healthcare-related expenses or lost revenue directly attributable to the public health emergency. Distributions do not need to be repaid to the US government, if you comply with the terms and conditions.

Who is eligible?
Medical practices and other healthcare providers impacted by the COVID-19 crisis who meet the criteria of the program

Note:
Within 90 days of receiving payment, you must sign an attestation confirming receipt of the funds and agreeing to certain terms and conditions.

Unemployment insurance


 

Federal Pandemic Unemployment Insurance

The CARES Act provided full federal support of state unemployment benefits for layoffs and job disruptions due to COVID-19. In December 2020, a new package was signed into law extending the amount and duration of these benefits. This law extends two programs established in response to the pandemic; (1) Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, which allows self-employed individuals, gig workers, and others not usually eligible for benefits to receive payments, and (2) Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, under which up to 13 weeks of additional payments may be available to individuals who exhaust regular state benefits. The new law also provides for supplemental $300 payments to all benefit recipients for a period of time ending March 14, 2021.

How to apply:
Follow the rules of your state; for information contact your state unemployment agency.
