Good news for Region residents who may have family members residing downstate who are still struggling to recover from the aftermath of last Novembers tornadoes--low interest help is on the way.
According to a press release from Governor Pence's office, as a result of Governor Pence's request, low interest federal disaster loans will be available to citizens, businesses and certain non-profit organizations in 19 counties as a result of damage from the severe weather outbreak on November 17th.
The governor said, “Hoosiers are still struggling to recover...we’re pleased that the U.S. Small Business Administration has agreed to provide low interest federal disaster loans to assist Hoosiers, businesses, and non-profit organizations as they work to repair damage in the days and weeks ahead.”
The loan program is through the U.S. Small Business Administration with Disaster Loan Outreach Centers soon to be established in the effected counties, according to the release..
Those suffering damage to personal or business property must return applications by April 7, 2014. The deadline to return economic injury applications - which includes, for example, payroll, working capital and other business financial commitments - is November 5, 2014.
Disaster Loan Outreach Centers will be established in Daviess, Fountain, and Howard counties, which were the primary counties requested. Other counties that are eligible because they are contiguous are Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Dubois, Grant, Greene, Knox, Martin, Miami, Montgomery, Parke, Pike, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Vermillion, and Warren. 
Hoosiers in eligible counties can apply by visiting one of the SBA Disaster Centers or online at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/.
