Loan Forgiveness Application


The SBA has posted the PPP Loan Forgiveness Application on their website.

SBA Disaster Assistance in Response to the Coronavirus

• The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering designated states and territories low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Upon a request received from a state’s or territory’s Governor, SBA will issue under its own authority, as provided by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act that was recently signed by the President, an Economic Injury Disaster Loan declaration.

• Any such Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance declaration issued by the SBA makes loans available to small businesses and private, non-profit organizations in designated areas of a state or territory to help alleviate economic injury caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

• SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance will coordinate with the state’s or territory’s Governor to submit the request for Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance.

• Once a declaration is made for designated areas within a state, the information on the application process for Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance will be made available to all affected communities as well as updated on our website: SBA.gov/disaster.

• SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans offer up to $2 million in assistance per small business and can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.

• These loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses without credit available elsewhere; businesses with credit available elsewhere are not eligible. The interest rate for non-profits is 2.75%.

• SBA offers loans with long-term repayments in order to keep payments affordable, up to a maximum of 30 years. Terms are determined on a case-by-case basis, based upon each borrower’s ability to repay.

• SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans are just one piece of the expanded focus of the federal government’s coordinated response, and the SBA is strongly committed to providing the most effective and customer-focused response possible.

• For additional information, please contact the SBA disaster assistance customer service center. Call 1-800-659-2955 (TTY: 1-800-877-8339) or e-mail disastercustomerservice@sba.gov.

• Visit SBA.gov/disaster for more information.


*Businesses in Carroll, Strafford & Rockingham County (NH) can apply for disaster loans due to bordering York County (ME).  SBA approves contiguous counties with disaster declarations due to impact overflow, even when it crosses State lines. 

I realize that many of you are overwhelmed with email regarding COVID 19 and its impact on your business. I am writing to share a few resources and to let you know that we at MWVEC are standing by to help you in any way we can.

If you are a MWVEC loan client and experiencing economic disruption such as lost revenue, please contact me directly at 603-455-3610 or jac@mwvec.com so we can discuss payment relief, should that become necessary.

The Small Business Authority (SBA) will have disaster loans available to both for-profits and not for profits; first, a federal disaster must be declared in NH. The more businesses that report on their disruption, the faster that will happen. Please contact the NH Office of Emergency Management to report any economic disruption your business is facing. They can be reached at 603-223-6169. Once that declaration is made, we can direct you on how to access these low interest direct federal loans.

Lastly, please reach out to anyone on the MWVEC team if you want to discuss short term strategies to help bridge the gap until business gets back to normal.
