We would like to share the following regarding the SBA Disaster Loan Application and the applicability for non-profits.
Julio S. Casiano, U.S. Small Business Administration Deputy District Director, is quoted as saying that private non-profit organizations qualify for these Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) at an annual percentage rate of 2.75 percent.
He further indicated that qualified private non-profit organizations include nursing homes, museums, educational facilities, day-care and senior centers and others – basically, a non-profit organization that is not government owned. Non-qualifying non-profits would include religious and charitable organizations, such as social club organizations. However, there doesn’t appear to be any information on the SBA website that defines this further. In a call yesterday with Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner David Lehman and the Governor, as well as other state agency contacts, it was indicated that they needed to gather more information on the applicability and determination of qualifying non-profits.
