SBA stresses importance of reapplying for loans if denied

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The U.S. Small Business Administration joined local business leaders and the Warren County Disaster Recovery Center Wednesday.

Here they announced that they and FEMA have put together almost 60 million dollars total.

Also, SBA advises people to take up their low interest, long term loans, promising that they’re here to help for the long term.

SBA encourages people with damage to apply for federal assistance even if you’ve been denied before.

SBA Southeast regional administrator Allen Thomas said, “Take advantage of this while it’s available to you so that whenever you choose to use it it’ll be available for you, specifically to do your repairs and get your property back to the level that it was when the tornado occurred.”

One SBA public affairs manager Michael Lampton agreed saying, “Don’t let the fact that when you try to do it online discourage you from being able to get yourself forward and get you back on your feet.”

They also remind disaster survivors that the approaching filing deadline to return applications for property damage is now March 14th.
