SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans Now Open for Indiana Small Businesses
Thanks to a concerted effort by our partners throughout the state, Indiana small businesses can now apply for SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL).
What's an EIDL?
The SBA EIDL program can provide low-interest loans of up to $2M to businesses and private non-profits.
EIDLs may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills.
The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses without credit available elsewhere. The interest rate for non-profits is 2.75%.
EIDLs have long-term repayment options, up to a maximum of 30 years. Terms are determined on a case-by-case basis, based on borrower's ability to repay.
