 (Small Businesses and Nonprofits

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has granted Texas’ Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) assistance declaration. The SBA will make loans available to small businesses and private, non-profit organizations to help alleviate economic injury caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created by the stimulus bill in March. The new act allocates $60 billion in PPP loans for medium, small, and community lenders and another $60 billion to the Economic Injury Disaster Loans program that offers loans up to $2 million.

Small businesses who believe they may be eligible for an SBA EIDL or PPP should visit the SBA’s website where they can directly apply for assistance. The online application is the fastest method to receive a decision about loan eligibility.
