Aug 4, 2020 | COVID-19, Finance, Government, News, Small Business

The PPP application deadline is August 8, but SBA Debt Relief, EIDL still options for financing  

As part of economic relief efforts related to the Coronavirus pandemic, nearly $30 billion in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) funds have been approved for small businesses and nonprofits in the US Small Business Administration (SBA) Pacific Northwest Region serving Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. 

To put that in perspective, during fiscal year 2019, the SBA approved $1.6 billion in the Pacific Northwest and $28 billion nationally as part of the agency’s traditional small business loan programs.

PPP Progress and Important Dates 

According to SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza, the PPP alone has supported the employment of more than 50 million American workers and greater than 80 percent of the small business payroll across the country.

“More than 5,400 lenders nationwide stepped up to deliver PPP loans to small businesses, nonprofits and the self-employed. During the past few months, lenders have worked with us long hours, late nights and weekends to save America’s businesses and it’s paying off,” said SBA Pacific Northwest Regional Administrator Jeremy Field. “Lenders have told me many stories about tears of joy and gratitude from their small business clients. Their individual stories validate the impactful data we’re seeing.”  

The last day the SBA can accept new PPP applications is Friday, August 8. However, Field advises local businesses and eligible organizations to start the PPP application process this week as connecting with a lender and compiling necessary paperwork can take some time.  

He adds that the August 8 deadline is for lenders to submit applications to the SBA for approval so a borrower needs to submit their application and paperwork ahead of that date. 

Borrowers will work with and apply to their lenders for PPP loan forgiveness. More information on PPP forgiveness is available at www.sba.gov/paycheckprotection

SBA Debt Relief Another Financing Option

For small businesses that need additional financing beyond the PPP, the SBA will pay six months of principal, interest, and any associated fees that borrowers owe for all loans in its traditional lending programs – specifically 7(a), 504, and Microloans – disbursed prior to September 27, 2020.  

The agency has already been paying these fees for current 7(a), 504, and Microloans in regular servicing status. 

“Access to capital has always been a top need for small businesses and that is even more so true as businesses navigate a new economic reality,” Field said. “As part of our agency’s relief efforts, we want more businesses to know of this added benefit to traditional SBA loan programs. Our network of lenders stepped up for the PPP and we will continue to work with them to provide small businesses financing through the SBA 7(a), 504 and Microloan programs.”

EIDL Still Available for Businesses, Nonprofits 

EIDL applications continue to be processed and accepted as another financing option for small businesses and nonprofits impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.  

In just three months, the SBA approved and disbursed nearly twice as many EIDL loans for COVID-19 than it has for all other disasters in the combined 67-year history of the agency.

The Corporate 100

April 2021

Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
