Under the CARES Act, the US Small Business Administration (“SBA”) has provided $659B through the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) and another 190B through the Republican HEALS Act or Democratic Heroes Act expected soon.

Are SBA PPP Loans The Same As Disaster Loans?

PPP loans differ from Economic Injury and Disaster Loans (EIDLs). PPP loans are available to all US businesses based on the requirements above.

EIDLs are also available for small businesses in designated areas (right now that’s classified as all US states and territories) that have suffered an economic hit because of the COVID-19 pandemic, though the requirements are more stringent. Unlike PPPs, EIDLs/disaster loans must be repaid in full.

 

What Is The Repayment Term?

Terms are available for up to 30 years.

 

What Is The Economic Injury Disaster Loan Grant?

All small businesses and non-profits that apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan are eligible to receive up to a $10,000 grant. Funds will be made available within 3 days of a successful EIDL application. Grant proceeds do not have to be repaid. Your grant amount will be based on your annual revenue and the cost of goods sold over the past 12 months.

 

After you submit all required information and documentation through our application assistance service, a US Fund Source business consultant will help prepare and submit your EIDL package. 

 

The SBA will process your application and timing could take anywhere from 2 weeks to 90 days. An EIDL advance will be issued to eligible applicants within 3 days of receiving and SBA confirmation number. 

If you meet the minimum requirements to apply for a disaster loan, the grant will be available to you whether or not your loan application is approved.
