The U.S. Small Business Administration announced that over $100 million in low-interest disaster loans have been approved for Florida businesses and residents affected by Hurricane Irma in Florida. The filing deadline to submit applications for physical property damage is Nov. 9, 2017. The deadline for economic injury applications is June 11, 2018. “Currently, 3,466 disaster loans have been approved in the amount of $129,290,900 for affected survivors.  The SBA encourages anyone who has not applied to take action right away.  Our mission is to help businesses and residents rebuild and resume their normal lives as quickly as possible,” said Frank Skaggs, director of SBA’s Field Operations Center East in Atlanta.

The disaster declaration includes Citrus County, which is eligible for both Physical and Economic Injury Disaster Loans from the SBA.  SBA disaster loans are available to businesses of all sizes, most private nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters to cover uninsured losses from the disaster.  Interest rates are as low as 3.305 percent for businesses, 2.5 percent for private nonprofit organizations, and 1.75 percent for homeowners and renters.  Loan terms can be up to 30 years. Economic injury disaster loans are also available to provide disaster related working capital to small businesses and most private nonprofit organizations.  These working capital loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that could have been paid had the disaster not occurred
