  • The SBA will also automatically pay the principal, interest, and fees of new 7(a), 504, and microloans issued prior to September 27, 2020.

Economic Injury Disaster Loan Programs:

The EIDL program is being administered in the following two ways. EIDL Cash Advance:

  • Direct deposit into the account information provided in the application.

  • You will likely receive the funds without SBA contact.

EIDL Loan:

  • Application will be assigned to a case manager for review.

  • The case manager will be in contact for any additional documentation and/or information needed to process the application.

  • Loan closing information will be finalized.


The UAlbany SBDC has started to hear about some EIDL cash advances this week, so hopefully you will receive those funds soon. The EIDL loan will likely take longer. Both programs are processing the applications in the order in which they received them, and unfortunately there is a very high volume of applications.
