Yes! You can get started by visiting https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/ and setting up an account there.

You are encouraged to start the application process, but you cannot complete it until your county is declared a disaster area. Once that happens, you will receive an email from the SBA informing you that you can complete the application process.

The SBA has a list of states and counties that are currently designated as disaster areas, including those designated specifically for COVID-19 and those designated for other reasons, such as drought. You can find the full, searchable list HERE.

Fill out the Estimated Disaster Economic Injury Worksheet for Businesses. In order for a county to be declared a disaster, at least five businesses in the county must submit this form. This form will tell the Small Business Administration how your business and area is negatively impacted and will help ensure your county is designated a disaster area.

In Arkansas, you can submit the form to businesscovid19@adem.arkansas.gov.

Outside of Arkansas,  you can submit the form to FOCWFieldOpsCadre@sba.gov.

Communities Unlimited can only answer on behalf of its own process, so borrowers should contact their lenders to understand and negotiate their terms.

Communities Unlimited will work with its borrowers who are engaged and who provide the required information.
