SBA Disaster Loans

SBA provides low-interest disaster loans to businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners, and renters. The Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) is a type of disaster loan, and it’s designed to provide economic relief to small businesses affected by natural disaster loans. Business physical disaster loans may be used to repair or replace items damaged or destroyed in a declared disaster such as real estate, machinery and equipment, and inventory and business assets.

Due to the pandemic, the SBA has announced extended deferment periods for all disaster loans, including the COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, until 2022.

  • All SBA disaster loans made in calendar year 2020, including COVID-19 EIDL, will have a first payment due date extended from 12-months to 24-months from the date of the note.
  • All SBA disaster loans made in calendar year 2021, including COVID-19 EIDL, will have a first payment due date extended from 12-months to 18-months from the date of the note.

Existing SBA disaster loans approved prior to 2020 in regular servicing status as of March 1, 2020, received an automatic deferment of principal and interest payments through December 31, 2020. This initial deferment period was subsequently extended through March 31, 2021. An additional 12-month deferment of principal and interest payments will be automatically granted to these borrowers. Borrowers will resume their regular payment schedule with the payment immediately preceding March 31, 2022, unless the borrower voluntarily continues to make payments while on deferment.

Since interest continues to accrue during deferment, borrowers may want to consider making payments sooner if they are able.
