We were asked to share this for FLOOD VICTIMS. SBA offers a LOAN program to help out, but it is only open TODAY, please SHARE: The Disaster Loan Outreach Center in Bloomington provides people one-on-one assistance with their applications. It is open today, noon-5 p.m., and M-F next week, 8-5, at the Monroe County Convention Center on S. College Ave. It closes permanently on Friday, July 16 at 5 pm. That is why I am requesting your assistance in getting the word out as quickly as possible. Once the center closes, it just means one-on-one help is no longer available. People still have until the Sept. 7 deadline to apply. They can do so at: disasterloanassistance.sba.gov/ela/s/
I am available to meet with your staff/clients/residents, attend meetings, do Facebook Lives or Zoom calls – anything to help people understand the disaster loan program. The important thing is for people to understand that physical disaster loans for uncompensated losses are for homeowners and renters, along with businesses of ALL sizes and non-profit organizations. The interest rate for homeowners and renters is as low as 1.625 percent.
Here are some program highlights:
- There is currently an 18-month payment deferment for all new disaster loans. Your first payment will be due 18 months from the date of your promissory note. Interest accrues during that period, and if you wish to start paying your loan back sooner, you can.
- There is no prepayment penalty on disaster loans.
- Disaster loans are direct from the US Treasury and do not involve a commercial bank.
- It is free to apply for a disaster loan and there are no points or fees. If your application is approved, you are under no obligation to accept a loan. You can also accept a partial amount.
- No collateral is required for loans of $25K or less
- If you are approved for a loan and turn it down, you have 6 months to change your mind and re-activate your application.
- Small businesses do not need physical damage to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan for working capital, but they need to show losses directly attributed to the disaster.
- Disaster loans cover things regular insurance does not: fencing, decks, walkways, landscaping, wells, septic systems, sheds, excavation, culverts, driveways.
- You don’t have to wait to settle with your insurance company to apply.
- If you’ve already used your credit card to start making repairs, you can use your disaster loan to pay off the higher-interest debt.
- You can add “mitigation” money to your physical disaster loan to make improvements to help protect your home or business from a future disaster.
- If your business received a COVID-19 EIDL or PPP, you can still apply for a disaster loan. However, SBA cannot consolidate payments.
- If you have a physical disaster loan from a previous disaster, you can also apply for this disaster, and any future disaster, but SBA cannot consolidate payments. ... See MoreSee Less
