Disaster Assistance – Field Operations Center- East – 101
Date: May 18, 2015
Release Number: 15-240 MA 14312
WASHINGTON – Low-interest economic injury disaster loans from the
U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available to Massachusetts small
businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small aquaculture businesses and
private non-profit organizations affected by the record-breaking snowfall and
extreme cold temperatures between Jan. 26, 2015 and Feb. 22, 2015.
SBA Administrator Maria
Contreras-Sweet made the loans
available following a disaster declaration request from Massachusetts Gov.
Charles D. Baker on May 12. The
declaration covers Middlesex, Norfolk, and Plymouth counties and the adjacent
counties of Barnstable, Bristol, Essex, Suffolk and Worcester in Massachusetts;
Hillsborough in New Hampshire; and
Providence in Rhode Island.
“The Small Business
Administration is strongly committed to providing the most effective and
customer-focused response possible to help small businesses and non-profits in
Massachusetts with their federal disaster loans,” said Contreras-Sweet.
“Getting businesses and communities up and running after a disaster is
our highest priority at SBA.”
“The SBA can help affected
small businesses and non-profit organizations overcome their economic losses by
offering working capital loans, but the help cannot start until they submit an
SBA disaster loan application to us,” said Robert H. Nelson, SBA’s
Massachusetts district director.
Eligible entities may qualify
for loans up to $2 million. The SBA
offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) to help meet working capital needs
caused by the disaster. The rates on
these loans are 4.00 percent for small businesses and 2.625 percent for
non-profit organizations with terms up to 30 years.
The SBA determines eligibility for the loans based on the size and type
of business and its financial resources.
Applicants may apply online
using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.
Applications and program
information are available by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at
1-800-659-2955 (1-800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing), or by sending
an email to email@example.com.
Loan applications can also be downloaded from the SBA’s website at www.sba.gov
The deadline to return economic
injury applications is February 15,
