Military Reservists Economic Injury Loans (MREIDL)

military

SBA's Military Reservist Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (MREIDL) program can help you keep your #SmallBusiness running in the event you or an essential employee is called up to active duty.

MREIDL provides funds to help an eligible small business meet its ordinary and necessary operating expenses that it could have met, but is unable to, because an essential employee was called-up to active duty in his or her role as a military reservist.

Loan Amounts and Use
The maximum MREIDL loan amount is $2 million. The amount of each loan is limited to the actual economic injury as calculated by SBA. The amount is also limited by business interruption insurance and whether the business and/or its owners have sufficient funds to operate. If a business is a major source of employment, SBA has authority to waive the $2 million statutory limit.
