SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan

There are a few loan options available to small business in response to COVID-19. Two of them being the SBA 7A Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). What's the difference? The PPP loan balance is completely forgivable if the company applying meets the specific requirements, EIDL loans are not (aside from the $10,000 grant). Also, the PPP cap is higher at $10 million, as opposed to the EIDL cap of $2 million per organization.

General facts:

  • Available to companies with 500 or fewer employees
  • Companies with more than 500 employees can still apply if they meet the SBA size standards for their specific industry. Real Estate, Rental and Leasing specifications can be found under Sector 53 (Subsector 531 - 533)
  • Upon successful application, up to $10,000 will be issued in advance and will not have to be repaid
  • Loan amounts can be up to $2 million with a 3.75% interest rate for small businesses, and 2.75% for private and non-profit businesses
  • Check eligibility to apply for this loan on pages 4 and 5 of this document
