ATLANTA, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Small Business Administration adds one additional county for disaster assistance and reminds eligible Private NonProfit (PNP) organizations in Tennessee of the June 1 deadline to submit disaster loan applications for physical damages caused by the severe winter storm and flooding on Feb. 15 – 22, 2015.
PNPs that provide non-critical services located in the following counties in Tennessee are eligible to apply: Anderson, Bedford, Bledsoe, Blount, Campbell, Clay, Coffee, Cumberland, Fentress, Giles, Grainger, Grundy, Hamblen, Hancock, Hardeman, Hardin, Jefferson, Knox, Lawrence, Loudon, Marshall, McMinn, McNairy, Meigs, Monroe, Moore, Morgan, Obion, Overton, Putnam, Roane, Scott, Sevier, Van Buren, Warren and White. Examples of eligible non-critical PNP organizations include, but are not limited to, food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools and colleges.

Approved loans can be increased for protective measures to lessen similar future damages. Additionally, PNPs can obtain loans for unmet working capital needs. To be considered for this assistance, PNPs need to apply by the deadline.
