It’s Important to Submit an SBA Loan Application:

FEMA may refer survivors of Hurricane Ian to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA ) with information on how to apply for a disaster loan. Homeowners, renters, business owners and certain nonprofits may be eligible. It’s important to submit the loan application as soon as possible.

If your application is approved, you are not obligated to accept an SBA loan but failure to return the application may disqualify you from other possible financial assistance from FEMA and State of Florida. Please see the News Release below.
