“Our lenders play such an important role in financing the startup and growth of Alaska’s small businesses. Especially this past year, they were critical in offering funds to so many struggling businesses,” says SBA Alaska Director Steve Brown.
EIDL loan applications will continue to be accepted through December 2021, pending the availability of funds. Every eligible small business and nonprofit are encouraged to apply to get the resources they need.
“By working together with SBA lending and resource partners, the SBA has delivered on its promise to our region’s entrepreneurs to empower them at every stage of their business lifecycle, including recovery,” says SBA Pacific Northwest Regional Administrator Jeremy Field.
