With less than three weeks remaining in 2021, you still have the opportunity to get a piece of the $100 billion left in Small Business Administration (SBA) loans and grants. December 31 is the last day applications will be accepted for the COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and Targeted EIDL Advance. And the Supplemental Targeted Advance applications must be turned in no later than December 10, 2021.
One of the benefits of applying for government loans is the great rates. As a small business with less than 500 employees, you can apply for an EIDL loan of up to $2 million. The loan comes with a 3.75% interest rate if you are a for-profit company. And if you are a not-for-profit organization, the rate goes down to 2.75%. What makes it even more attractive is, these are 30-year loans.
