DISASTER ASSISTANCE

Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration are available to businesses and residents in Michigan following the announcement of a Presidential disaster declaration due to severe storms, flooding, and tornadoes from June 25 - 26, 2021.

Businesses and private nonprofit organizations of any size may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace disaster-damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets. Applicants may be eligible for a loan amount increase up to 20 percent of their physical damages, as verified by the SBA, for mitigation purposes. Eligible mitigation improvements may include a sump pump, elevation, French drain or retaining wall to help protect property and occupants from future damage caused by a similar disaster.

Applicants can learn more or apply online via SBA's secure website at:
