We have been receiving feedback from New Bedford businesses, that due to high volume, they are experiencing difficultly setting up accounts, logging in, and submitting applications in the SBA Disaster Loan Portal.
For your convenience we have provided the Disaster Loan Application and associated documents on nbedc.org .
These documents can be completed and submitted by mail, or simply completed in draft so that they are more easily completed and submitted when you are able to login to the SBA Portal.
The Portal is available 24 hours per day and we have been informed traffic is significantly less between the hours of 8pm and 6am.
Additionally, you can find the NBEDC loan application here, although we would encourage you to submit an SBA Disaster Loan Application when able. These loans have very favorable terms and there is no obligation to accept the SBA Loan once you are approved.
