Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) funds are available immediately through the U.S. Small Business Administration. These grants provide an emergency advance of up to $10,000 to small businesses harmed by COVID-19.  To access the advance, applicants must first apply for an EIDL and then request the advance.  The advance does not need to be repaid under any circumstance. Here is a link to apply directly online: The website will post additional updates as they become available. Monroe County is also administering a loan program – see first link below.
