SBA Now Offers "Hardship Accommodation Plans" For EIDL Borrowers

EIDL Under $200,000: If your EIDL loan is equal to or under $200,000, read this post on how to request "Hardship Accommodation Plan" on your CAFS dashboard.

EIDL Above $200,000: If your EIDL loan is above $200,000 there is no automatic hardship accommodation request. To apply, contact the COVID-19 EIDL Servicing Center at 833-853-5638 or disastercustomerservice@sba.gov (and include “Hardship Accommodation Plan” in the subject line). You will be contacted by a loan specialist regarding requirements.
