Need the following: 2 years completed personal tax returns, 2 years business tax returns, evidence of economic injury (usually that means a YTD Profit and Loss showing the revenue loss), evidence of 2 to 100 employees.


Either apply online or mail to the central location. (Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, 107 E. Madison Street, MSC-160, Tallahassee, FL 32399-4120)

SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) - Up to $2M, up to 30 years, can be used to pay back the Florida Emergency Bridge Loan. Apply directly at the SBA. There is also a grant aspect of this where if you apply the SBA will provide some money up front
