COVID-19 UPDATE: Small Business Administration

The state of Illinois is seeking input from small businesses on the impact of COVID-19. Responses will assist the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in evaluating Illinois’ request for an economic injury disaster declaration, resulting in loans for affected businesses and non-profits. 

Small businesses in Illinois that have suffered economic injury as a result of COVID-19 are encouraged to submit their information to Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity.  Information obtained from this form will only be used to assist in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from SBA and identifying greatest areas of need.

In addition, health and safety guidelines from the CDC for businesses and employers can be found here.
