The flooding on June 20-21 in Western Pennsylvania affected many counties, including Allegheny.
Due to the flooding’s severity, many homes and businesses sustained physical damage, which could cost business and homeowners a substantial amount of money.
But don’t worry – help is a “click” away.
The U.S. Small Business Administration is encouraging businesses of all sizes, private nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters affected by the June flooding to apply for a disaster loan before the Sept. 24 deadline.
Businesses and nonprofits can apply up to $2 million to repair or replace disaster-damaged real estate. Loans for working capital, also known as Economic Injury Disaster Loans, are available even if the business did not suffer any physical damage.
Homeowners can apply up to $200,000 to repair or replace disaster-damaged real estate. Homeowners and renters can apply for up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged personal property, including automobiles.
Interest rates are as low as 3.6 percent for businesses, 2.5 percent for private nonprofits, and 1.9 percent for homeowners and renters, with terms up to 30 years.
