When implemented, there will be many new resources available for small businesses, as well as certain nonprofits and other employers. This guide provides information about the major programs and initiatives that will soon be available from the Small Business Administration (SBA) to address these needs, as well as some additional tax provisions that are outside the scope of SBA.

Financial Resources for 501(c)(6) Organizations

Although 501(c)(6) organizations were not included in the $350 billion Paycheck Protection Act loan program, they are eligible to apply for a loan through the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program. To outline what is available to 501(c)(6) organizations through the EIDL program and the application process, the U.S. Chamber has created a one-pager that we hope will prove to be a useful resource for you and your members.

         For additional information on the EIDL program, we encourage you to visit the SBA's webpage.


Financial Resources for Small Businesses

The CARES Act has approved $350 billion in emergency loans for small businesses to help them keep workers employed. In fact, if small businesses maintain or later restore their payrolls, they may not have to repay some—or possibly any—of the loan. We encourage you and your members to utilize the U.S. Chamber's Coronavirus Emergency Loans Small Business Guide and Checklist to help answer common questions and navigate the process.
