SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan During COVID 19

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Economic Relief Opportunities for Small Businesses

The Small Business Administration’s (SBA’s) Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program is separate from those included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), and it might present an opportunity to build a working capital cushion. In short, the SBA is making available EIDLs in amounts up to $2 million to small businesses and non-profits to ease the economic impact of the Coronavirus. We are bringing together a panel of experts to answer your questions on how to apply and: “Get in the line.”

Moderator: Florence Lowe, COO, Synerzip.

They say there are only two things certain in life: death and taxes. What’s ironic is, given the current situation involving COVID-19, we’re facing the realities of both. Since the beginning of the year and in the months to come, we are confronted with massive changes in not only our everyday lives but also for our businesses.

In this panel discussion with experts Robert Wright, JD, MBA, and Adam Minow, CPA, MBA, we will discuss the EIDL program, the CARES ACT, and other opportunities for individuals and businesses to survive and thrive through this crisis.
