SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to
Arizona Residents and Businesses
Affected by the January Severe
Winter Storm & Snowstorm
Low-interest federal disaster loans are available to Arizona residents and business owners affected by the severe winter storm and snowstorm that occurred January 18 through 22, 2010, said U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Administrator Karen G. Mills. SBA acted under its own authority to declare a disaster following the July 22, 2010 denial of the state’s request for a major disaster declaration.
The disaster declaration makes SBA assistance available in the Arizona counties of Coconino, Gila, Graham, La Paz, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Pinal and Yavapai. “The U. S. Small Business Administration is strongly committed to providing the most effective and customer-focused response possible to assist those residents and businesses affected by the severe winter storm and snowstorm with federal disaster loans,” said Mills. “Getting our businesses and communities up and running after a disaster is our highest priority at SBA.”
The filing deadline to return applications for property damage is September 27, 2010. The deadline to return economic injury applications is April 27, 2011.
