Small Business Administration offers disaster assistance

SACRAMENTO (KRON) — The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering disaster assistance to California businesses and residents affected by the recent storms.

Low-interest federal disaster loans are available to California businesses and residents affected by severe storms and flooding that occurred between Feb. first and 25th, according to  U.S. Small Business Administration’s Administrator Linda McMahon.

SBA acted under its own authority to declare a disaster in response to a request from Governor Brown on March 17th.

SBA assistance will be available in Alameda, Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Merced, Modoc, Monterey, Napa, Plumas, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Shasta, Sierra, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Yolo and Yuba counties in California; and Washoe County in Nevada.

“Low-interest federal disaster loans are available to businesses of all sizes, most private nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters whose property was damaged or destroyed by this disaster,” said SBA’s acting Regional Administrator Robert Blaney. “Beginning Wednesday, March 22, 2017, SBA representatives will be on hand at the following Disaster Loan Outreach Centers to answer questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, explain the application process and help each individual complete their application,” Blaney said.
