Small Business Help 

Economic Injury Disaster Loan Assistance

All federal agencies are working together to protect public health, including the U.S. Small Business Administration. The small business administration's top priority is to ensure Ohio small businesses – which total nearly 950,000 – 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.

The SBA will continue to support small businesses through this difficult time, and urges Dayton area businesses to visit and follow @SBA_Columbus on Twitter or sign up for our newsletter for more updates.
