Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today announced, in response to his written request, the U.S. Small Business Administration is offering low-interest disaster loans to residents and businesses affected by Hurricane Sandy. Homeowners, renters and businesses located in Nicholas, Braxton, Clay, Fayette, Greenbrier, Kanawha and Webster counties may apply for disaster loan assistance for damages suffered between Oct. 29 and Nov. 10, 2012.
"I'm grateful the SBA has made this assistance available," Gov. Tomblin said. "These loans, up to $200,000 for homeowners and up to $2 million for businesses, can help those affected by the severe weather make needed repairs and replace lost items."
