COVID-19: SBA Offers Economic Injury Disaster (EIDL) Grants To EIDL Applicants

COVID-19: SBA Offers Economic Injury Disaster (EIDL) Grants To EIDL Applicants

Apr 01, 2020

In connection with the SBA’s EIDL Program, a borrower applying for an EIDL loan can request an advance on the loan of up to $10,000 to be used for authorized costs (such as paid sick leave, payroll, rent and increased supply chain costs).

The SBA is required to distribute the advance proceeds within three days of receipt of the request which would be submitted by a borrower in connection with and upon completion of its EIDL loan application, including a certification that the borrower is eligible to apply for an EIDL. It is currently unclear how the SBA will determine how much of the $10,000 maximum amount will be provided to an applicant.

The advance of up to $10,000 is considered by the SBA to be a grant. In other words, a borrower will not be required to repay the grant, EVEN IF the borrower’s application for an EIDL loan is denied. However, the amount of the advance must be deducted from any loan forgiveness amounts if the applicant later receives a Paycheck Protection Program Loan.
