With the coronavirus pandemic creating financial hardships for businesses locally and nationwide, UniSource Energy Services is working to support our commercial customers in these unprecedented circumstances.  We also have comprehensive plans in place to continue our operations and support you every day.

Customers are at the heart of everything we do, so we have prepared a list of helpful resources to assist our commercial customers during this pandemic.  The list includes federal, state, local, business and UniSource resources:

Federal

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)
Small Business Guidance & Loan Resources

The $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed into law on March 27, 2020, provided $376 billion for loans and grants through the SBA.

The CARES Act established several new temporary SBA programs to address the COVID-19 outbreak*

  • Economic Injury Disaster Loan Advance: Provides up to $10,000 to businesses, nonprofit groups or veterans organizations. Though described as an advance, the funds do not need to be repaid.
  • Paycheck Protection Program: Provides emergency loans for smaller businesses, nonprofit groups and other qualifying organizations that can be forgiven if funds are used to cover payroll, mortgage interest, rent or utility costs.
  • SBA Express Bridge Loans: Small businesses that currently have a business relationship with an SBA Express Lender may access up to $25,000 quickly.
  • SBA Debt Relief: Automatic payments on some smaller SBA loans and automatic deferrals for SBA-serviced disaster loans.

*Contact your local Small Business Development Center for assistance with these programs.
