Wisconsin SBDC to assist businesses with disaster loan applications
Free consulting also available to small business owners in need

The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network is helping small businesses apply for federal disaster loans to mitigate the substantial economic injury as a result of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is offering designated states and territories, including Wisconsin as of March 20, low-interest Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) for working capital as small businesses have been forced to close or scale back significantly to contain the spread of the virus, according to a SBDC press release.

The Wisconsin SBDC, a resource partner of the SBA, has created a webpage, wisconsinsbdc.org/disasterloans, to help business owners understand the qualifications and application process, the release notes.

Consultants across the network's 13 locations are working remotely via phone, email, and virtual tools to assist clients.

"Business owners face devastating, unprecedented challenges as cash flow and everyday lives are severely disrupted," noted state director Bon Wikenheiser. "They need expert advice they can trust now more than ever."

The Wisconsin SBDC Network, hosted by the University of Wisconsin System since 1980, offers no-cost, confidential consulting and business education to new and existing businesses.

In 2019, the SBDC served 4,658 clients, resulting in $91.3 million in capital investment, 300 new businesses, and 19,717 jobs supported.

"The UW System and its universities are proud to partner with the SBDC Network, and we know what vital service and support it provides to businesses and people across the state," said UW System President Ray Cross. "That will be critically important as we all face the widespread economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic."

"The SBDC Network is a trusted partner of the SBA," said Eric Ness, Wisconsin's SBA district director.

"Small business owners should use their services to ease and expedite the loan submission process," Ness added.

Additional business resources for small business owners can be found on Wisconsin SBDC's website, wisconsinsbdc.org/covid-19/, and Institute for Business & Entrepreneurship's website, business.wisconsin.edu/covid-19.
