At this time, only agricultural business applications will be accepted due to limitations in funding availability and the unprecedented submission of applications already received.
Applicants who have already submitted their applications will continue to be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. For agricultural businesses that submitted an EIDL application through the streamlined application portal prior to the legislative change, SBA will process these applications without the need for re-applying.
We just received word that EIDL applicants with 2000 series app numbers should reactivate their applications now that the portal has reopened for Agriculture. Even though the website will say the EIDL App Portal Opening will be for NEW agriculture business applicants only, ODA has informed our field leadership that if someone who has a 2000 series EIDL loan number (meaning that they were in the initial group and need to reapply) they WILL be able to re-apply and have their new loan number tied to their original loan number so they don’t lose their place in line.
