SBA low interest disaster loans

After registering with FEMA you may receive an application packet for the Small Business Administration (SBA) low interest disaster loan.

SBA disaster loans help homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private non-profit organizations fund the repair or rebuilding of physical property (homes or businesses) and cover the cost of replacing lost, damaged or destroyed personal property, machinery and equipment, inventory and business assets. SBA loans may cover insurance deductibles, code-required upgrades and other costs not covered by insurance or other sources.

Completion of the SBA disaster loan application may open the door to FEMA grants and other forms of assistance available to eligible residents. FEMA’s temporary housing assistance and grants for medical, dental and funeral expenses do not require individuals to apply for an SBA loan. However, applicants who receive SBA disaster loan applications must submit them to SBA to be eligible for assistance covering personal property, vehicle repair or replacement and moving and storage expenses. You are not obligated to accept the loan, or to accept the full amount if a loan is offered. Current rates for homeowners are as low as 1.875% and repayment may be extended for up to 30 years.

An insurance claim does not have to be settled to complete and submit an SBA loan application.

An SBA disaster loan application should be returned as soon as possible. For questions, please contact the SBA Customer Service Center by calling toll-free: (800) 659-2955 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. To apply online, visit:
https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/. Applicants may also visit www.sba.gov/services/disasterassistance or email disastercustomerservice@sba.gov.
