EIDL Emergency Advance Funds Are Depleted

The Small Business Administration announced on July 11 that its Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) emergency advance funds, allocated through the CARES Act, and subsequently, the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act, have run out. EIDL funds to small businesses of $1,000 per employee up to $10,000, also referred to as emergency grants, do not need to be repaid, though they reduce forgiveness for borrowers with Paycheck Protection Program loans.

While emergency advance or grant funds have been expended, Economic Injury Disaster Loans remain available to eligible organizations to support working capital needs generated by the COVID-19 crisis. Loan terms include an amortization period of up to 30 years, and a low interest rate of 3.75 percent for small businesses and 2.75 percent for non-profit organizations.
