SBA Form 159D Instructions

There are several types of disaster loans. Victims of a disaster can apply for home and personal property loans. Business owners can apply for Business Physical Disaster Loans. If the business has suffered an economic injury regardless of the physical damage, the owner may qualify for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). If a small business is unable to meet its operating expenses because an essential employee is a military reservist called to active duty, the business owner can apply for a Military Reservists Economic Injury Loan for assistance with the operating expenses.

This SBA 159D should be filed if the applicant has hired any professional for assistance with an SBA disaster loan application. However, if the business owner uses the services of an accountant or any other professional in the normal course of business and not related to the loan, the form is not required. Filling guidelines and additional information can be found below.
