A State of Emergency would need to be declared in Georgia. That would allow GA restaurant owners to apply for an SBA disaster assistance loan(s).
We encourage owners to reach out to Governor Kemp to sign an Executive Order declaring a State of Emergency in Georgia:
Last week the Small Business Administration announced disaster assistance loans for small businesses impacted by #Coronavirus (#COVID19). These funds must be requested by State Government first - once the deceleration is issued - applications will open. We can expect that to happen in the coming weeks.
SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans offer up to $2 million in assistance for a small business. These loans can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing- especially businesses that otherwise would not be able to go to a traditional bank or lending institution.
