Our nation’s small businesses are facing an unprecedented economic disruption due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The CARES Act, which contains $376 BILLION, was signed in relief for American workers and small businesses like yours. The SBA will resume accepting Paycheck Protection Program applications from participating lenders on Monday, April 27, 2020.

With the additional funding provided by the new COVID-19 relief package, SBA will resume processing EIDL Loan and Advance applications that are already in the queue on a first come, first-served basis.
