There is currently other relief available to those that already have existing SBA loans or enter into new SBA loans before September 27, 2020.

For current SBA loans that are 7(a), 504 or micro loans, the SBA will automatically pay the principal, interest and fees fora period of six months.
For new SBA loans that will be 7(a), 504 or micro loans issued before September 27, 2020, the SBA will automatically pay the principal, interest and fees for a period of six months.
Your loan balance will be reduced. It is not a deferral, but rather they are forgiving six months of payments on these loans.
