SBA Physical Disaster Loan Deadline Approaching in Georgia for Businesses and Residents Affected by Severe Flood Damage from Hurricane Ida

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is reminding businesses of all sizes, private nonprofit organizations, homeowners, and renters in Georgia of the Dec. 13 deadline to apply for physical damage disaster loans. Anyone in the declared counties with damages affected by the severe flood damage from Hurricane Ida from Aug. 30 through Sept. 1, 2021, should apply for the low-interest disaster loan program.
The declaration covers Cobb County and the adjacent counties of Bartow, Cherokee, Douglas, Fulton, and Paulding in Georgia.

“Waiting to file an SBA application could cause unnecessary delays in receiving disaster assistance, and survivors may miss the application deadline. Submitting the loan application is an essential part of the disaster recovery process,” said Kem Fleming, director of SBA Field Operations Center East.

SBA encourages businesses of all sizes, nonprofit organizations, homeowners, and renters to come to the Disaster Loan Outreach Center (DLOC) where SBA’s Customer Service Representatives are available to answer questions about the disaster loan program and assist disaster survivors apply.

The Center is open until further notice as follows:
SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center (DLOC)

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the SBA has established protocols to help protect the health and safety of the public. All visitors to the DLOC are encouraged to wear a face mask.
