  • Economic Injury Disaster Loans:

    These loans for small business from the Small Business Administration are available for self-employed individuals, sole proprietors, freelancers, etc. Applications are available online and should take less than two hours to complete. We’re hearing that these funds are on a first come, first served basis, so don’t delay. You can always turn it down if it turns out you don’t need it. These loans are intended to cover business expenses during the COVID crisis. Three days after approval, there is a $10,000 advance that will be considered a grant. The remainder of the loan is a low interest loan.
