Dear Administrator Mills:
We write to express our support for Indiana Governor Mike Pence's May 7, 2013, request for Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster assistance resulting from severe storms and flooding that impacted the State of Indiana from April 17, 2013, through April 23, 2013. Numerous homes and businesses were destroyed or suffered major damage as a result of this event.
The Governor, after the completion of joint preliminary damage assessments, has certified that the damage sustained exceeds the minimum standards necessary to qualify for SBA assistance. The assistance that the SBA would be able to provide under the Disaster Loan Program is essential to helping individuals and businesses in Indiana recover from this event.
We urge you to expeditiously consider and approve the Governor's request.
