Efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19 are causing significant challenges across the nation.  As a result of control measures, many small businesses in our communities are experiencing financial impacts.  In response, Governor Ned Lamont announced that Connecticut businesses have been approved to receive disaster assistance due to COVID-19.

Small businesses and nonprofit organizations in Connecticut that have been negatively impacted by the global COVID-19 outbreak are now eligible for disaster relief loans of up to $2 million directly from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, small business owners are eligible to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000.

Small businesses can learn more about the program and apply for financial assistance at www.sba.gov/disaster or call the SBA directly at 1.800.659.2955.

Small businesses with questions about this SBA loan program or other assistance provided at the state-level can also call 860.500.2333 to speak directly with a Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) representative. Businesses can also stay informed on news and guidance related to COVID-19 and its impact on Connecticut by visiting the state’s dedicated coronavirus website at ct.gov/coronavirus.
