“SBA opened the centers to provide personalized assistance to Texas businesses and residents who were affected by the severe storms that occurred Sept. 10-Nov. 2, 2018,” said Tanya N. Garfield, director of the SBA’s Disaster Field Operations Center-West. “Until the centers close, SBA customer service representatives will continue to be available to meet with businesses and residents to answer their questions, explain SBA’s disaster loan program, and close their approved disaster loans.”
Businesses, private nonprofits, and individuals can still apply or get more information online. The deadline for property damage application is May 6, 2019. The deadline to apply for economic injury is Dec. 6, 2019.
The SBA opened the outreach offices earlier in March after the administration issued its own disaster declaration related to the fall 2018 flooding. The SBA offers low-interest loans for affected homeowners, renters, businesses, and most private nonprofit organizations.
