The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) announced that small businesses are now eligible to receive Economic Impact Disaster Loans from the SBA in all 50 states and the U.S. territories. A “small business” also can include small agricultural cooperatives and most private nonprofit organizations.
These loans are available to provide the necessary working capital to help small businesses survive until normal operations resume after a disaster. This includes payment of expenses such as payroll, lease payments, vendor payments, and other bills.
