As more business interests look to survive the unprecedented challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, funds for government assistance and business loan programs have rapidly been stretched to their limits. Just this week, the SBA dramatically restricted access and financing limits when it reopened the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program (EIDL). The program, which previously offered loans up to $2 million to businesses with fewer than 500 employees, had previously closed its application portal on April 15. It reopened this past Monday, but is now limited to a maximum loan of $150,000 and only available to agricultural businesses. Ironically, agricultural businesses were omitted from the first round of relief legislation, but Congress inserted language in the CARES Act II specifically qualifying farmers that met the 500 employee threshold for low-interest SBA loans.
