Application Forms Your local financial institution
Can I receive both an SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan and a Paycheck Protection Program Loan?
Yes.  However, the two loans cannot duplicate uses of funds.  For example, you cannot include the 8 weeks of payroll costs received from
the PPP loan in your EIDL loan.
If I received an SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan can I refinance it into a Paycheck Protection Loan?
Yes. If you received an EIDL loan related to COVID-19 between January 31, 2020 and the date at which the PPP becomes available, you would be able to
refinance the EIDL into the PPP for loan forgiveness purposes. However, you may not take out an EIDL and a PPP for the same purposes. Remaining portions
of the EIDL, for purposes other than those laid out in loan forgiveness terms for a PPP loan, would remain a loan. If you took advantage of an emergency EIDL
grant award of up to $10,000, that amount would be subtracted from the amount forgiven under PPP.
