New Rapid Response Team (RRT) to Help Utahns Apply for CARES Act Assistance

Utah Coronavirus Website Landing Page

The SBA Utah District Office has partnered with the Governor’s Office through the Governor's Economic Recovery Task Force to establish a Rapid Response Team (RRT).

The new Rapid Response Team was formed to more quickly respond to the high volume of inquiries regarding SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and the Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) Loans. RRT members will help SBA respond to general inquiries regarding the EIDL and PPP programs, helping to ensure that Utah small business owners understand and utilize federal programs designed to help them during the Coronavirus pandemic.

There are three ways to submit general inquiries to the SBA and Rapid Response Team:

$10,000 EIDL ADVANCE - APPLY NOW

We know you are facing challenging times in this current health crisis. The U.S. Small Business Administration is committed to help bring relief to small businesses and nonprofit organizations suffering because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which provides additional assistance for small business owners and non-profits. 

Included in the CARES Act is the opportunity for small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000.

The loan advance will provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. This Advance may be available even if your EIDL application was declined or is still pending.

Funds will be made available within three days of a successful application, and this loan advance will not have to be repaid.


If you wish to apply for the Advance on your EIDL, please visit www.SBA.gov/Disaster as soon as possible to fill out a new, streamlined application.

In order to qualify for the Advance, you must submit this new application even if you previously submitted an EIDL application. Applying for the Advance will not impact the status or slow your existing EIDL application.
