COVID-19 Response

BOC Capital is closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are available to support small businesses that have been impacted. BOC Capital Corp. is a non-profit small business financial institution and has not received formal authorization from the SBA to process Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans at this time. We encourage all businesses to check with their current banking relationship to see if that bank will accept their PPP application. This will allow for a quicker and more efficient application process.

We are available to work with you in accessing resources for your business and help identify a lender if your bank is not available.  

Small Business Administration (SBA) COVID-19 Relief Programs

Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) and EIDL Grant/Advance
The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Program provides small businesses (500 employees or less) and nonprofits with low-interest loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing due to COVID-19. 

EIDL interest rates are 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for not-for-profits.

As part of the COVID-19 relief effort, borrowers can also apply for an Emergency EIDL Grant from the SBA to request an advance on the loan of up to $10,000. SBA will determine the amount of grant based on the information provided by the borrower.

- SBA must distribute the Emergency EIDL within three days of the request.
- The advance will be considered an Emergency EIDL grant.
- The borrower will not be required to pay back the Emergency EIDL Grant even if they are subsequently denied for an EIDL loan.
- In advance of disbursing the advance payment, the SBA will require that the borrower file a certification, under penalty of perjury, that they are eligible to apply for an EIDL loan.
- The Emergency EIDL Grants will end on December 30, 2020.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) provides $349 billion in loans to small business, nonprofits, sole proprietors and other eligible entities with fewer than 500 employees. Loans of up to $10 million can be obtained to cover certain business costs including employee payroll, rent, insurance, paid sick or medical leave, interest on mortgage obligations and utilities.

- PPP loans cover costs incurred February 15, 2020 – June 30, 2020
