The SBA provides low-interest disaster loans to help businesses recover from declared disasters. The Hogan Administration and the Commerce Department are applying for the U.S. SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan program. Application requires the Governor to request an SBA Economic Injury Declaration by certifying at least five (5) businesses in the disaster area suffered substantial economic injury as a result of the incident. SBA will be working through the governors’ office for each of the states to determine the amount of disruption by area before loans will be available to businesses in those impacted areas.
