    The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)

    Military Reservist Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (MREIDL)

    The United States Small Business Administration offers loans through its Military Reservist Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (MREIDL). The purpose of this program is to provide funds to eligible small businesses to meet ordinary and necessary operating expenses that it could have met, but is unable to meet, because an essential employee was "called-up" to active duty as a military reservist. These loans are intended only to provide the amount of working capital needed by a small business to pay its necessary obligations as they mature until operations return to normal after the essential employee is released from active military duty. The purpose of these loans is not to cover lost income or lost profits. MREIDL funds cannot be used to take the place of regular commercial debt, to refinance long-term debt or to expand the business.
    The maximum interest rate for this program is 4%. The law authorizes loan terms up to a maximum of 30 years. SBA determines the term of each loan in accordance with the borrower’s ability to repay. Based on the financial circumstances of each borrower, SBA determines an appropriate installment payment amount, which in turn determines the actual term.
    LOAN AMOUNT LIMIT: $1,500,000. The actual amount of each loan, up to this maximum, is limited to the actual economic injury as calculated by SBA, not compensated by business interruption insurance or otherwise, and beyond the ability of the business and/or its owners to provide. If a business is a major source of employment, SBA has authority to waive the $1,500,000 statutory limit.
    DEADLINE:The Filing Period for small businesses to apply for economic injury loan assistance begins on the date the essential employee is ordered to active duty and ends 90 days after the essential employee is discharged or released from active duty. (NOTE: This program applies to military conflicts occurring or ending on or after March 24, 1999.)
