  • **HELP FOR LOUISIANA SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS**

    Low-interest disaster loans are now available through the U.S. Small Business Administration to help Louisiana businesses through this crisis.  

    Economic Injury Disaster Loan Assistance
    Small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories are currently eligible to apply for a long term low-interest loan due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

    The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.

    CLICK HERE to apply for SBA loan online. 

    Depending on your circumstances, you may qualify for a loan of up to $2 million, at a rate as low as 3.75% (or, 2.75% for a non-profit organization), with favorable terms of repayment (up to 30 years).

    In addition, businesses with an existing SBA loan may be allowed to defer payments for up to 6 months, pending approval by individual lenders.

    You may also contact the SBA at (800) 659-2955, or the New Orleans regional SBA office at (504) 589-6685.

    **UPDATE**

    Many Louisiana small business owners have reported problems about long wait times, website crashes, and other problems preventing them from completing the SBA disaster loan application. As I understand, the SBA is referring applicants to their local banks.
