As we face unprecedented business disruptions related to social distancing required by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Aiken is working to marshal all possible resources available to support you. Please follow the link below to set an appointment to consult with our Economic Development Department to via teleconference.

During your consultation, we will walk you through local resources available as well as assist with applications for Economic Injury Disaster Loans available through the U.S. Small Business Administration. As other grants, loans, and programs become available we will keep you informed as to how they may offer help until the Coronavirus threat has passed. Attached to this email, you will find a presentation that fully describes the SBA EIDL program currently offering signature loans of up to $25,000 and secured loans of up to $2 million with interest rates of 3.75 percent for businesses and 2.75% for non-profits.
