SBA announces $5 billion in Covid-19 aid for small businesses

Federal Issues SBA Covid-19 Small Business Lending EIDL

Federal Issues

On April 23, the Small Business Administration (SBA) announced a new round of Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) assistance to provide $5 billion in additional assistance to small businesses and nonprofit organizations with 10 employees or fewer that have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Supplemental Targeted Advance program is the latest SBA relief program and follows recent SBA actions taken to increase EIDL assistance. As previously covered by InfoBytes, last month SBA raised the loan limit for Covid-19 disaster loans “from 6-months of economic injury with a maximum loan amount of $150,000 to up to 24-months of economic injury with a maximum loan amount of $500,000,” and extended the deferment period for all disaster loans, including Covid-19 EIDLs, until 2022 (covered by InfoBytes here).
