SBA Loan Assistance:
On March 6th, congress passed the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2020 making $1 billion available to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to provide low-interest loans to small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, and nonprofits that have suffered substantial economic losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Whitmer notified the SBA that she is seeking an Economic Injury Disaster Loan Declaration for the state and has initiated the process to receive the declaration from SBA. Once granted, small businesses in qualifying areas will be able to access low-interest loans through the SBA

For additional information or to obtain help preparing the loan application in advance of the declaration, please contact the Michigan SBA offices in Detroit or Grand Rapids. https://www.sba.gov/offices/district/mi/detroit  The Michigan Small Business Development Center can also provide resources for small businesses impacted by COVID-19. Visit their website:  Supporting Your Small Business During COVID-19 for additional information. https://sbdcmichigan.org/small-business-covid19/
