The SBA EIDL Grants and PPP Loans were supposed to be for small businesses! Unfortunately, most of the funded went to people who defrauded the system by "making up" a business or lying on their application saying that they were an Agricultural business in order to expedite funds in 1-3 days.  The SBA sent out millions of dollars to people who lied on their application instead of the money going to real businesses in distress.  Unfortunately,  people did not understand the level of seriousness that lying and mishandling FEDERAL FUNDS can have. The consequences are harsh including a felony, fines, and being barred from Federal programs such as: Section 8, Food Stamps, Cash Aid, FHA, Federal Student Loans, etc...No access to any federal funded program.If you filled out your application fraudulently or you let someone else fill it out,  it is highly suggested that you return the funds to the SBA.
