ATLANTA, July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Small Business Administration announced today that Rowan County has been added to the Presidential declaration for Public Assistance resulting from damages caused by severe storms, tornadoes, flooding, landslides and mudslides on April 2 -17, 2015.
PNPs that provide non-critical services located in Carter, Floyd, Lincoln, Nicholas, Owen, Pike, Rowan, Spencer and Whitley counties in Kentucky are eligible to apply. Examples of eligible non-critical PNP organizations include, but are not limited to, food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools and colleges.
Although the deadline to apply for a disaster loan for physical damages was June 30, 2015, survivors may still submit an application after the deadline and should include an explanation of the substantial causes beyond their control preventing them from submitting the application by the deadline.
The SBA offers low-interest disaster loans to PNP organizations for physical losses up to its loan limits. Approved loans can be increased for protective measures to lessen similar future damages. Additionally, Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) are available for PNPs for unmet working capital needs.
Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA's secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.
Disaster loan information and application forms may also be obtained by calling the SBA's Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955 (800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications can also be downloaded from the SBA's website at www.sba.gov/disaster. Completed applications should be mailed to: U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155.
