Massachusetts businesses and residents affected by the severe winter storm and flooding in Norfolk County on March 2-3, 2018, can apply for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, Administrator Linda McMahon announced today.
Administrator McMahon made the loans available in response to a letter from Gov. Charles D. Baker on April 30, requesting a disaster declaration by the SBA. The declaration covers Norfolk County and the adjacent counties of Bristol, Middlesex, Plymouth, Suffolk and Worcester in Massachusetts; and Providence in Rhode Island.
“The SBA is strongly committed to providing the people of Massachusetts with the most effective and customer-focused response possible to assist businesses of all sizes, homeowners and renters with federal disaster loans,” said McMahon. “Getting businesses and communities up and running after a disaster is our highest priority at SBA.”
SBA’s Customer Service Representatives will be available at the Disaster Loan Outreach Center to answer questions about the disaster loan program and help individuals complete their applications.
The Center is located in the following community and is open as indicated:
Town of Weymouth
