SBDC Small Business Loan & SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans

Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan (EBL) Program

This program is out of funds and no longer accepting applications.

The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program is short-term, interest-free working capital loans that are intended to “bridge the gap” between the time a major catastrophe hits and when a business has secured longer term recovery resources, such as sufficient profits from a revived business, receipt of payments on insurance claims or federal disaster assistance.

For questions regarding the Emergency Bridge Loan Program, please contact the Florida Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network Headquarters. Email: [email protected] (preferred method of contact). Phone: Regional SBDC Office at (813)905-5800.

U.S. SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL)

The President has activated a presidential disaster declaration in response to COVID-19. Impacted businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, and private nonprofit organizations may apply for low-interest loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Program. If your business has suffered substantial economic injury, you may qualify for an EIDL. EIDLs provide working capital to help businesses survive until normal operations resume after a disaster. The SBA can provide up to $2 million to help meet financial obligations and operating expenses that could have been met had the disaster not occurred.
