​The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is now offering low-interest federal disaster loans to Sacramento County small businesses and nonprofit organizations suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans offer up to $2 million in assistance for small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing. These loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that are unable to be paid because of the disaster’s impact. The interest rate is 3.75 percent for small businesses. The interest rate for private non-profit organizations is 2.75 percent. SBA offers loans with long-term repayments in order to keep payments affordable, up to a maximum of 30 years and are available to entities without the financial ability to offset the adverse impact without hardship. Terms are determined on a case-by-case basis, based upon each borrower’s ability to repay and eligibility is based on the financial impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
