Dear Small Businesses,

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is offering low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to California small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the COVID-19.

On March 16, 2020, San Diego County was declared a primary county due to the magnitude of Economic Injury Disaster Loan worksheets that were submitted to our office from local businesses. 

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) has provided information regarding this declaration.  Below is information pertaining to who may apply for the Economic Injury Disaster Loans and how to apply. 

Eligible Primary Counties: Alameda, Calaveras, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Mateo, Sonoma, and Tuolumne

Application deadline for business economic injury: December 16, 2020

Who may apply: Small, non-farm businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, and most private non-profit organizations of any size.  Small businesses include those that do business directly with the growers, such as truckers and suppliers of agricultural equipment or services.

How to apply: Contact SBA at 1-800-659-2955 or visit SBA's website at:www.sba.gov/disaster, or email disastercustomerservice@sba.gov Hearing impaired individuals may call 1-800-877-8339.

Those that have completed and submitted worksheets, still need to apply at SBA’s website: www.sba.gov/disaster, or email disastercustomerservice@sba.gov.   

In coordination with the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Disaster Assistance, Cal OES will be holding a call on Wednesday, March 18th at 4:00 PM to explain the SBA disaster loan application process and answer questions from small business support organizations.

The call will cover:
