SBA Disaster Assistance

Here’s the message from the SBA:

Subject: SBA Disaster Assistance Form & Additional Resources for Small Businesses

All federal agencies are working together to protect public health, including the U.S. Small Business Administration. The agency’s top priority is to ensure Ohio small businesses – which total nearly 950,000 – can continue their contributions to the state’s economy, and our nation.

The SBA is working directly with Governor DeWine’s office to facilitate a disaster declaration for businesses to be eligible for Economic Injury Disaster loans. To expedite this process, we need your help in disseminating the attached Disaster Loan Declaration form for businesses to fill out. Once you have done so, please email the completed forms to

Once that declaration is made and the SBA has confirmed it, the agency will be able to provide Economic Injury Disaster Loans of up to $2 million per small business to assist with economic recovery.

Please feel free to send out the attached handouts as well as the below links to disaster assistance:

The SBA will continue to support small businesses through this difficult time, and we urge you to visit and follow @SBA_Columbus on Twitter or sign up for its newsletter for more updates.
