Thank you for reaching out to the Small Business Administration’s West Virginia District Office in recent days. We know these are challenging times and we are here to support you all we can with your small business needs.

We are pleased to share that West Virginia small businesses (according to SBA’s size standards) and most private non-profits with substantial economic injury due to coronavirus can now apply for loans of up to $2 million. These loans can provide working capital to meet the needs of payroll, accounts payable, and fixed debt payments until the situation improves. Interest rates are 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profits.
