COVID-19 Emergency Injury Disaster Loan Application (for Nonprofits)

EIDL UPDATE: As of Jan. 1, 2021, the SBA will be making EIDL Loans through Dec. 31, 2021. The EIDL loan program will also be providing “Targeted EIDL Grants” to borrowers who did not receive the full $10,000 in their first round EIDL grant or their application was not granted because funding ran out in the first round. Completing the Targeted EIDL Advance application is a requirement for eligibility. Applicants must wait until they receive an email invite from the SBA to apply for both the Targeted EIDL Advance and Supplemental Targeted Advance.

This 20 minute instructional video walks you through the EIDL online application. Communities Rise Executive Director will give a brief overview of the PPP and EIDL programs and walk you through the online EIDL application. Note that this video was recorded on April 6, 2020, and there have been many changes since the video recorded. However, the application has remained for the most part the same, so the video walk through is still helpful. Please check the EIDL Updates and Supplemental Information document for updates since the video was recorded.
