3 STEPS TO APPLY FOR AN SBA ECONOMIC INJURY DISASTER LOAN

The U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA) provides low-interest, long-term disaster loans to businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners, and renters to repair or replace uninsured/underinsured disaster damaged property. SBA disaster loans offer an affordable way for individuals and businesses to recover from declared disasters.


STEP 1: Apply for Loan

  • Apply: 1) online; 2) in-person at a disaster center;or 3) by mail.
  • Apply online at the SBA’s secure website disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.
  • As a business of any size, you may borrow up to $2 million for physical damage.
  • As a small business, small agricultural cooperative, small business engaged in aquaculture, or private non-profit organization you may borrow up to $2 million for Economic Injury.
  • As a small business, you may apply for a maximum business loan (physical and EIDL) of
    $2 million.
  • As a homeowner you may borrow up to$200,000 to repair/replace your disaster damaged primary residence.
  • As a homeowner or renter, you may borrow up to $40,000 to repair/replace damaged personal property.

STEP 2: Property Verification & Loan Processing Decisions Made

  • SBA reviews your credit before conducting an inspection to verify your losses.
  • Someone from SBA will verify the estimated total physical loss to your disaster damaged property.
  • A loan officer will determine your eligibility during processing, after reviewing any insurance or other recoveries. SBA can make a loan while your insurance recovery is pending.
  • A loan officer works with you to provide all the necessary information needed to reach a loan determination. Our goal is to arrive at a decision on your application within 2 - 3 weeks.
  • A loan officer will contact you to discuss the loan recommendation and your next steps.You will also be advised in writing of all loan decisions.

STEP 3: Loan Closing & Funds Dispersed

  • SBA will prepare and send your Loan Closing Documents to you for your signature.
  • Once we receive your signed Loan Closing Documents, an initial disbursement will be made to you within 5 days:
  • Physical damage:
    • $25,000
  • Economic injury (working capital):
    • $25,000 (In addition to the physical damage disbursement)
  • A case manager will be assigned to work with you to help you meet all loan conditions. They will also schedule subsequent disbursements until you receive the full loan amount.
  • Your loan may be adjusted after closing due to your changing circumstances, such as increasing the loan for unexpected repair costs or reducing the loan due to additional insurance proceeds.
