WASHINGTON – New Jersey businesses and residents affected by severe storms and flooding on Aug. 11-13, 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. Phil Murphy on Oct. 18, requesting a disaster declaration by the SBA. The declaration covers Ocean and Passaic counties, and the adjacent counties of Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Essex, Monmouth, Morris, and Sussex in New Jersey; Orange and Rockland in New York.
“The SBA is strongly committed to providing the people of New Jersey 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.
