This is a reminder to individuals and businesses affected by the Severe Storms, Flooding, Landslides, and Mudslides – September 11 through September 30, 2013 that the deadline to apply for a low-interest rate loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration is December 02, 2013, for physical damages. You must also apply to FEMA by the same deadline. Don’t wait until the last minute because the processing takes time.
In the aftermath of a federally declared disaster, SBA is the primary federal program for funding long-term disaster recovery for homeowners, renters and businesses. Our records indicate you were previously sent an SBA disaster loan application.
Do not wait to settle with your insurance company before applying for disaster loan assistance. Waiting to file an SBA application could cause unnecessary delays in receiving disaster assistance and cause you to miss the filing deadline.
You must return your completed application on or before the filing deadline to be considered for a loan from the SBA or referral to FEMA for possible grant assistance that covers items such as personal property, vehicle repair and moving and storage expenses. The SBA offers the option of filing your disaster home and/or business loan applications online through our secure website at: https://disasterloan.sba.gov.
Individuals, renters, and business owners may also visit a FEMA/SBA Disaster Recovery Center, a SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center or a Business Recovery Center to obtain and/or submit disaster loan applications. These centers are temporary assistance centers currently located in the following counties: Arapahoe, Boulder, El Paso, Larimer, Morgan and Weld. Hours and locations may change.
