All federal agencies are working together to protect public health, including the U.S. Small Business Administration. Our agency’s top priority is to ensure Ohio small businesses – which total nearly 950,000 – stay strong and can continue their contributions to the state’s economy, and our nation.

The SBA is working directly with Governor DeWine’s office to facilitate a disaster declaration from the SBA for businesses to be eligible for Economic Injury Disaster loans. To expedite this process, we need your help in disseminating the attached Estimated Disaster Economic Injury Worksheet for businesses to fill out. Once you have done so, please email the completed forms to james.laipply@development.ohio.gov.

The agency will be able to provide Economic Injury Disaster Loans of up to $2 million per small business to assist with economic recovery.
