EIDL VS PPP Loan Program

If you apply for the EIDL loan, businesses can get a $10,000 cash advance grant.  The cash advance does not have to be repaid if spent on “maintaining payroll and other operating expenses.”

The current timeline suggests that business owners would have access to cash advance funds within three days of a successful application. If a PPP loan is also taken, the $10,000 cash advance grant would be applied to reduce loan forgiveness under the PPP loan program.
