The following time-sensitive notice was issued (twice) by the U.S. Small Business Administration on December 17, 2021. Florida’s businesses should take note now and act immediately if interested in still participating in the Economic Industry Disaster Loans (EIDL) program.
- The deadline for submitting COVID EIDL loan applications is 11:59 PM ET on December 31, 2021. No new loan applications will be accepted after the December 31 deadline.
- SBA will continue to review loan applications after December 31. Applicants are encouraged to submit their COVID EIDL loan applications as soon as possible.
- COVID EIDL borrowers can request increases up to their maximum eligible loan amount for up to two years after their loan origination date, or until the funds are exhausted, whichever is soonest.
- SBA will accept and review reconsideration and appeal requests for COVID EIDL applications if the reconsideration/appeal is received within the timeframes in the regulation—6 months from date of decline for reconsiderations and 30 days from date of reconsideration decline for appeals – unless funding is no longer available.
- The deadline for submitting Targeted EIDL Advance and Supplemental Targeted Advance applications is 11:59 PM ET on December 31, 2021.
