Due to the ongoing economic challenges facing small businesses, the Small Business Administration (SBA) recently extended the deferment period on the COVID Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). The EIDL is a disaster relief loan that has given small business owners financial assistance during the pandemic totaling almost $400 billion. Businesses struggling to recover from the pandemic, supply chain disruptions, as well as ongoing inflation, will benefit even more from the recent extension of the deferment period.
The additional extension gives borrowers 30 months instead of the two years that the initial extension called for. The thirty-month deferment extension will contain the following provisions:
EIDL borrowers must start making regular principal and interest payments 30 months after the note’s issue date once the deferment period is over. On the SBA website, EIDL borrowers can find details about the EIDL program.
