Economic Injury Disaster Loans-Has anyone here gotten one yet?

I registered almost immediately after this was announce. I haven't heard one word. Has anyone else? There seems to be no way to check on status of these "loans".

'In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories are eligible to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000. This advance will provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. Funds will be made available following a successful application. This loan advance will not have to be repaid.

The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan provides vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This program is for any small business with fewer than 500 employees (including sole proprietorships, independent contractors and self-employed persons), private non-profit organization or 501(c)(19) veterans organizations affected by COVID-19.

Businesses in certain industries may have more than 500 employees if they meet the SBA’s size standards for those industries.

The Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance funds will be made available within days of a successful application, and this loan advance will not have to be repaid.'

Does anyone have a real light saber I can borrow?

I will get a Nobel Prize for curing this stupid virus. All I need to do is get Millions of people to drop their drawers, bend over and take a deep breath.

OMG, the stupid, it kills.

If small business's already filled out the form to get one of the additional covid "loans"

do we need to fill out another one for this, once it passes the Senate?
I did not get one the first time even though I thought I was well within the allotted time frame.

Something I can't figure out in my lil brain

I keep hearing that farmers and dairy people are "trashing" food because of all the restaurants being closed down. People STILL have to eat????? Why isn't that food going to stores instead of restaurants?
I can't wrap my brain around why food is being thrown away in America.

(especially when people go to bed hungry every night)...but that is for another post.
