    FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

    NOTE: the information below is compliments of Union Bank & Trust. You need to contact your financial institution as soon as possible to have your banker assist you in signing up for loans or grants to help you keep your business and the ability to pay your employees.

    President Trump recently signed the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, which authorizes the SBA to provide Economic injury Disaster Loan assistance available to qualifying small businesses and private nonprofit organizations (exclusions may apply) to help alleviate the economic impact of COVID-19. Additionally, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts has proactively applied for and been awarded the ability to allow any Nebraska-based business and private nonprofit organization to apply for SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans.

    Here’s the nitty-gritty on these special SBA federal disaster loans:

    • SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans offer up to $2 million in assistance 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.
    • For applications that qualify, the interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses, and the interest rate for qualifying nonprofits 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.

    For additional information on these SBA loans, please contact the SBA disaster assistance customer service center by calling 800.659.2955, visiting SBA.gov/disaster, or filling out an application. (Please note: The SBA website is experiencing an exceptionally high level of traffic, so if the page doesn’t load right away, keep trying.)

    More relief measures and programs are in the works at the local, state, and federal levels of government, and we will do our best to update you on those steps as we are able. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
