Why is It Important to Check Targeted EIDL Grant Eligibility Now?
First, there's still over $20 billion available to give out to businesses and independent contractors. Based on the average Targeted grant size, that means there are over 3 million Targeted EIDL grants still available. There's no other grant program in the U.S. that comes close to this size.
Second, this funding may be disappearing soon. According to the draft legislation of the $1 trillion infrastructure bill, nearly $20 billion from the Targeted EIDL Grant pot of money would be "permanently rescinded" to go toward the new bill.
If you are in doubt, double-check your eligibility, then tell a friend (or many friends).
How to Check Targeted EIDL Grant Eligibility?
The formula is fairly straightforward: Did you have earnings that you reported on your 2019 taxes that came from a business or side hustle? Did you have less than 300 employees? Did you experience a 30% or greater decline in revenue over an eight-week period between 2019 and 2020?
If you answered yes to those three questions, then you're nearly there. The final — and major — sticking point is: Are you located in a low-income community as defined by recent census data?
You can check to see if your business address qualifies in two places: The first place to check is on the Skip app (for free). Just go to TrackEIDLGrant.com to get the app and a $10 credit, or search "Hello Skip" in the App Store or Google Play. Then click "Check EIDL Grant Eligibility" under the Recommended Services. Alternatively, you can go to a lookup tool provided by the SBA to check.
