SBA Disaster Loan Updates

Our local Bergen County Small Business Administration office is working with the NJ Economic Development Authority to streamline the help for small businesses. In the meantime, Friday’s declaration of a Federal Disaster opened up federal disaster relief programs. You can register at

https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/Account/Register1

Please note that after you register (so they can verify your identity for future logins) they haven’t programmed in the current disaster declaration. We’re just hoping that this gets us to the front of the line.

If business is slow please check out the following websites:

Federal

sba.gov

https://www.eda.gov/ (Usually enormous loans )

State

https://www.njeda.com/

Local

www.sbdcbergen.com/ (cut & paste this one – they have a more modern webpage that enforces better security but it’s labeled a really uninformative ‘home page’)

When they come out with specific programs please let the Chamber know so I can tell everyone else.

Thanks,

Christine Evron,

President
