In news with Kaitlin Moore, the Small Business Administration disaster assistance program is in town offering federal aid to those who are recovering from June’s storms.

Starting this week through August 17th, representatives of the disaster loan outreach program will help individuals complete applications and explain the process.

Businesses may borrow up to 2 million dollars, homeowners 200,000 dollars and renters 40,000 dollars.

While the assistance center will operate through August 17th, the filing deadline to submit applications for property damage is September 25th.

Gary Colton, SBA Disaster Assistance says, “A lot of times you don’t really know how much damage you had until you get into really rebuilding or repairing and you find out that the damage is deeper than they thought and takes more money.”

Colton and his team has set up shop on the second floor of the Edd B. Keyes building from 8 am to 5 pm through August 17th offering assistance to those in need.
