Small Business Administration (SBA) Loan Programs

For Businesses Affected by Covid-19

While we are still in the process of gathering details about the various programs being offered by the SBA to assist America’s small businesses with the COVID-19 pandemic, this is what we do know: 

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

The Paycheck Protection Program is specifically designed to help small businesses keep their workforce employed. Visit for more information on the Paycheck Protection Program.

  • The new loan program will be available retroactive from Feb. 15, 2020, so employers can
    rehire their recently laid-off employees through June 30, 2020.
Loan Terms & Conditions
  • Eligible businesses: All businesses, including non-profits, Veterans organizations, Tribal concerns, sole proprietorships, self-employed individuals, and independent contractors, with 500 or fewer employees, or no greater than the number of employees set by the SBA as the size standard for certain industries
  • Maximum loan amount up to $10 million
  • Loan forgiveness if proceeds used for payroll costs and other designated business operating expenses in the 24 weeks following the date of loan origination, not more than 40% of the forgiven amount may be for non-payroll costs
  • All loans under this program will have the following identical features: 
    • Interest rate of 1.00%

    • First payment deferred for six months
    • 100% guarantee by SBA

SBA’s announcement comes on the heels of a series of steps taken by the Agency since the President’s Emergency Declaration to expeditiously provide capital to financially distressed businesses affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Since March 17, SBA has taken the following steps:
  • Declared all states and territories eligible for Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance
  • 1-year deferment on Economic Injury Disaster Loans provided due to COVID-19
  • Automatic deferment of previous disaster loans for homeowners and businesses through
  • Waiver of garnishments through 2020
