The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding Indiana small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private non-profit organizations of all sizes that the deadlines to file for federal low interest economic injury disaster loans as a result of last year’s drought are approaching.
A series of SBA Secretary of Agriculture disaster declarations during the summer of 2012 made federal economic injury disaster loans available to farm-related and nonfarm-related entities that suffered financial losses as a direct result of a drought. Combined, the declarations covered all of Indiana’s 92 counties. Some counties were included in multiple declarations and are eligible to apply for loans from any of the declarations they were a part of.
Due to the different dates that SBA disaster loans were granted, there are different deadlines to apply.
The deadline for Dearborn County is April 15.
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 1-800-659-2955 (1-800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Loan applications can be downloaded fromwww.sba.gov. Completed applications should be mailed to: U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155.
