I’ve been trying for weeks to apply for the EIDL on the SBA website and have been unsuccessful. I kept seeing that initial funds had been exhausted and they would post when they began accepting additional applications. The link provided via your Forward email allowed me to apply this morning. I really appreciate your assistance!

I found the website to be very helpful and informative. Logging in was simple and reading through each program that I could qualify for was a snap!
— Chris Panouses, Uncle Pete’s Restaurant
It seems quite easy to use with a simple interface and I like the idea to expand the details into more specific information. I would recommend this as a good resource/portal for acquiring knowledge to all the various programs and if they would apply to a business.
