The SBA is launching a new round of Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Advances – called Targeted EIDL Advance – which provides eligible businesses with $10,000 in total grant assistance. If you received the EIDL Advance last year in an amount less than $10,000, you may be eligible to receive the difference up to the full $10,000. The combined amount of the Targeted EIDL Advance and any previously received Advance will not exceed $10,000.
Businesses eligible for the Targeted EIDL Advance must meet ALL the following eligibility criteria:
• Located in a low-income community, as defined in section 45D(e) of the Internal Revenue Code. The SBA will map your business address to determine if you are in a low-income community when you submit your Targeted EIDL Advance application.
• Suffered economic loss greater than 30 percent, as demonstrated by an 8-week period beginning on March 2, 2020, or later, compared to the previous year. You will be required to provide the total amount of monthly gross receipts from January 2019 to the current month-to-date.
• Must have 300 or fewer employees. Business entities normally eligible for the EIDL program are eligible, including sole proprietors, independent contractors, and private, nonprofit organizations. However, agricultural enterprises, such as farmers and ranchers, are not eligible to receive the Targeted EIDL Advance.
To help applicants determine if they are located in a low-income community, as defined in section 45D(e) of the Internal Revenue Code, the SBA is making available a mapping tool at https://sbaeidl.policymap.com/app. Note that the business address must be located in a low-income community to qualify for the Targeted EIDL Advance. You are encouraged to check the map to see if your business address meets the low-income community eligibility requirement before you apply.
To assist you in completing the Targeted EIDL Advance questions, have available a copy of your 2019 Federal Tax Return and the business’ monthly gross receipts for each month from January 2019 through the most recent month-to-date period. The information you provide will be used to determine if your business meets the economic loss greater than 30 percent requirement above. You will also be asked to confirm that the information provided in your original EIDL application is still accurate. If there are any changes, you may be asked to provide documentation to determine if you are eligible for a Targeted EIDL Advance. Applicants that pass the initial eligibility requirements will also be required to electronically sign an IRS Form 4506-T allowing the SBA to obtain tax transcripts directly from the IRS.
All application decisions will be communicated via email. If your request is approved, you will receive an email notification and an ACH deposit to the bank account you provided in your application.
