COVID-19 Emergency Injury Disaster Loan Application (for Small Business)

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. At this point the Targeted EIDL Grants ($10,000 grants) are not open to new applicants.

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 12, 2020, and several rules have changes since the video was made. However, the application itself has has not changed significantly. Please check the EIDL Updates and Supplemental Information document for updates since the video was recorded.
