Idaho wants to hear from small business owners.

Governor Brad Little announced that the state seeks response from small businesses who have been affected by the coronvirus pandemic.

The state needs response from small businesses in order to demonstrate economic injury as determined by the Small Business Administration. The SBA could then asses the economic injury and decide whether to activate economic injury disaster loan assistance.

Impacted businesses could be assisted by receiving disaster assistance in the form of low interest loans from the SBA.

The state also wants to hear from businesses that have been impacted by coronovirus who don’t plan to apply for federal assistance.

Businesses can find the economic injury worksheet at commerce.idaho.gov/covid-19/. Forms can be emailed to Jerry Miller with the Idaho Department of Commerce at jerry.miller@commerce.idaho.gov.

Those who wish to submit their worksheets in a different matter are asked to call 208-287-0780.

Farms and ranches are not available for the SBA program but those who own those kinds of operations can contact their county’s U.S. Department of Agriculture or Farm Service Agency representative.
