FY 21 NH District Office - Quarterly Report

We had a busy beginning to our Fiscal Year which included a visit from our former SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza, co-hosting our 2020 Small Business Awards Ceremony and Lender Recognition with the NH Banker’s Association, and welcoming our new district director, Amy Bassett, back to the NH District Office. Our staff actively assisted our participating lenders with PPP Forgiveness guidance and supported access to new credit where needed. We partnered with our resource partners and other economic development officials across the state to help small businesses navigate the agency’s programs and resources aiding recovery and pivoting during these challenging times. As we move into the next quarter, we look forward to continuing our collaboration with our lending and
resource partners to deliver new or amended programs to NH small businesses and non-profits. Read the FY21 1st Quarter Report Here

Childcare Providers Join Us on 2/26

Paycheck Protection Program Overview for NH Child Care Providers – Friday, February 26 at 12:30pm

New Hampshire child care providers — including sole-proprietors—are eligible for the Small Business Administration's (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Better yet, the SBA will forgive these PPP loans if all employee retention criteria are met, and the funds are used for eligible expenses. But the March 31st approval deadline is quickly approaching! Please join the NH Department of Health & Human Services for a free webinar where the SBA New Hampshire District Office will provide an overview of how the PPP program works, connect providers with resource partners for application assistance and answer any questions about the program. Already receive a PPP loan? SBA will also outline Second Draw PPP loan eligibility.

Targeted EIDL Advance

The Small Business Administration is contacting some New Hampshire small business owners about the Targeted Economic Injury Disaster Loan Advance, which provides businesses located in low-income communities with additional funds.

Applicants located in low-income communities who previously received an EIDL Advance for less than $10,000 will have first priority to apply for the Targeted EIDL Advance and will be the first group to receive email invites to the application portal. Those who applied for an EIDL Advance, but did not received funds due to a lack of program funding are in the second priority group.

The SBA will reach out to those who qualify.

Applicants do not need to take any action at this time.

Applicants must wait until they receive an email invite from the SBA to apply for the new Targeted EIDL Advance. The SBA began sending email invites Feb. 1. It may take several weeks before all emails are sent to businesses in the first priority group. The SBA will announce a projected start date for the second priority group at a later date.

All communications from SBA will be sent from an official government email with an @sba.gov ending. Please do not send sensitive information via email to any address that does not end in @sba.gov.
