Applicants may qualify if they:
- Are in a low-income community. To help applicants determine if they are in a low-income community as defined in section 45D(e) of the Internal Revenue Code, a mapping tool is available at https://sbaeidl.policymap.com/app. The business address must be in a low-income community to qualify so SBA encourages potential applicants to check the map to see if they meet the low-income community eligibility requirement before they apply; and
- Can demonstrate more than 30% reduction in revenue during an eight-week period beginning on March 2, 2020, or later. If an applicant meets the low-income community criteria, they will be asked to provide gross monthly revenue (all forms of combined monthly earnings received, such as profits or salaries) to confirm the 30% reduction.
