Description: The Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) program is typically used to relieve the economic strain of natural disasters. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the EIDL program was expanded to all small businesses, agricultural businesses, and nonprofit organizations in all states and territories. The Small Business Administration was forced to release detailed information on these COVID-19 EIDL loans in response to a FOIA act filed by a coalition of news organizations.
Additional Notes: KN 2020-12-05, different from historical EIDL (via IRE).
