The Small Business Administration has extended its deadlines for Sandy-hit small businesses and homeowners to apply for disaster loans — and it’s offering application help from the experts.
Storm victims should apply for physical damage claims by Feb. 27, and by July 31 for economic injury loans.
The loans apply to small businesses and homeowners who sustained physical damage to their properties — as well as to renters who lost their possessions — and include damage to, or loss of, any vehicles. Small business owners are also eligible if they lost business due to the storm.
Financial experts will be on hand at three locations across the city to help with applications and answer any questions. Reservations are required.
Brooklyn Pubic Library at Cadman Plaza West, Feb. 21 from 10 am–noon [RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 264–1473]; Baruch College in Manhattan, Feb. 21 from 6–8 pm [RSVP to email@example.com or (212) 264–2734]; and St. George Library Center on Staten Island, Feb. 25 from 6–7:45 pm [RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 264–1473].
