A customer is getting an “online functionality are temporarily unavailable” message on the EIDL portal. What should they do? 

If your customers are getting a message that “online functionality are temporarily unavailable” on SBA’s Disaster Loan Assistance Portal, recommend they clear their cache, or restart their computer. The site is live and accepting applications!  For now, the online application is no longer active but the forms that I’ve been sharing are there on that site and can be uploaded once complete. 

What resources does SBA have out to help navigate their EIDL process? 

The SBA’s Minnesota District Office has created two important resources to help small businesses understand their Economic Injury Disaster Loans. 

1. Please visit this webpage to understand the loans, download the forms to apply, and much more.

2. If you have questions about the SBA’s EIDL Loans, please watch this 14 minute video created by them to help answer some FAQs. 

How are your community banking peers responding to COVID-19?

These are resources ICBM has gathered from government agencies, members and associate members to consolidate information that can aid community banks during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The questions and answers are provided by Minnesota community bankers. We’ve posted responses with minimal editing in order to publish as soon as possible. Users of this page are responsible for determining the best course of action for your business and circumstances. Bullet points separate different answers from bankers.
