SBA Loans for Nonprofits

To be eligible, your organization needs to be located in a designated disaster loan relief location and have been unable to obtain credit elsewhere. On March 18, 2020, Governor Northam sent a disaster declaration for numerous cities and counties in Virginia. This list is expected to grow as the coronavirus pandemic continues. For more information about the loan, qualifying areas, and application information, see our article, SBA Disaster Loans: A Financial Tool for Obtaining Liquidity.
