The Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDL) can provide up to $2 million of financial assistance (actual loan amounts are based on amount of economic injury) to small businesses or private, non-profit organizations that suffer substantial economic injury as a result of the declared disaster, regardless of whether the applicant sustained physical damage.
An EIDL can help you meet necessary financial obligations that your business or private, non-profit organization could have met had the disaster not occurred. It provides relief from economic injury caused directly by the disaster and permits you to maintain a reasonable working capital position during the period affected by the disaster. EIDLs do not replace lost sales or revenue.
To be eligible for EIDL assistance, small businesses or private non-profit organizations must have sustained economic injury and be located in a disaster declared county or contiguous county.
MCHENRY COUNTY, KANE COUNTY, LAKE COUNTY, DUPAGE COUNTY AND COOK COUNTY, ALONG WITH ALL OTHER ILLINOIS COUNTIES, HAVE BEEN DECLARED A FEDERAL DISASTER AREA.
