Types of Relief Funds for Businesses

Talk to our team to learn about these resources and other ways to help your business obtain financial support to manage this crisis:

  • Paycheck Protection Program: This program authorizes up to $349 billion to go towards helping small business owners with job retention and certain other expenses. Small businesses, eligible nonprofit organizations, Veterans organizations, Tribal businesses, self-employed individuals, and independent contractors can seek a loan up to $10 million. The amount of the loan is determined by 8 weeks of prior average payroll plus an additional 25% of that amount. Loan payments under the Paycheck Protection Program will be deferred for six months.
  • Economic Injury Disaster Loan Advance: Small business owners in all 50 U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories can apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance. The maximum amount of this type of loan is $10,000. It is intended to provide economic relief to businesses experiencing a temporary loss of revenue from the pandemic. An Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance doesn’t have to be repaid.
  • SBA Debt Relief: This program provides a reprieve to small businesses to aid in overcoming the challenges created by the COVID-19 crisis. The U.S. Small Business Administration will also pay the principal and interest of new 7(a) loans issued before September 27, 2020, as well as the principal and interest of current 7(a) loans for a period of six months.
  • SBA Express Bridge Loans: If you already have a business relationship with an SBA Express Lender, then you can apply for the Express Bridge Loan Pilot Program. Business owners who qualify for this program can get a loan for up to $25,000 with less paperwork. An SBA Express Bridge loan can be used to cover expenses while you are applying for a direct SBA Economic Injury Disaster loan.
