The City of Scribner realizes our small town is going through trying times right now. We are doing our best to offer our businesses and residents every resource out there as they develop.

Down below there are options on how to apply for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan, either online or through the mail.

If you choose the mail option, make sure you choose the correct form: small business (FORM 5) or if you are a sole proprietor or applying for help with mortgage/rent assistance due to loss of wages (FORM 5C). **Both forms are also located in the City of Scribner office lobby**

**The estimated time for completing this entire application is two hours and ten minutes, although you may not need to complete all parts. It will be asking for tax information



In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories are eligible to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000. The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.

The loan advance will provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. Funds will be made available within three days of a successful application, and this loan advance will not have to be repaid.
