New Website Created for SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Applications

The SBA has created a new website to receive EIDL applications. Apply here.

The new website has additional capacity to accommodate additional online traffic, but the SBA recommends that online applications be submitted during the non-peak hours of 7 p.m. - 7 a.m.

The SBA has also created a flier with all of the required forms and information to help you prepare your application in advance of submitting online at the link above. SBA recommends online applications, but they are also accepting applications via mail or e-mail. The flier includes mail and email information for applicants. Download the flier here in the Small Businesses drop-down menu.

If you have any questions about your application, the SBA customer service number is 1-800-659-2955 or (TTY) (800) 877-8339.
