Civil Unrest Impact Form

IL Dept of Commerce & Economic Opportunity

From the Illinois Dept of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) on 6/8/2020: 

  • The DCEO is working with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) who can provide targeted, low-interest loans to small businesses and non-profits that have been severely impacted by civil unrest in counties who have received a disaster declaration through SBA.

  • If your business has experienced an impact due to the civil unrest, including property damage or other losses due to civil unrest closure, we ask that you please take a moment to fill out this form so we can provide the necessary information to the SBA.

  • To obtain these special business loans for small businesses and non-profits in our communities, SBA must first issue a disaster declaration. For counties to qualify, businesses must first document their damages from the protests and looting and share this information with SBA.

    • Please note: The form is not an application for funding and information obtained will not be used for or against businesses should they decide to later submit an application for a loan through SBA.

    • Questions regarding this effort by the DCEO can be directed to the First Stop Business Information Center via email or call the toll-free helpline at 1.800.252.2923.
