Customer service representatives will
be available to meet individually with each business owner
to explain how an SBA disaster loan can help finance their
recovery and to help them through the application process.
Businesses of any size and private,
nonprofit organizations may borrow up to $2 million to
repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate,
machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business
assets. These loans cover losses that are not fully covered
by insurance or other recoveries.
For small businesses, small
agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in
aquaculture, and most private, nonprofit organizations of
any size, SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs)
to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster.
EIDL assistance is available regardless of whether
the business suffered any property damage.
