Donnelly, Young, Hollingsworth Welcome SBA Disaster Assistance for Washington County and Surrounding Areas

Following recent historic flooding they sent letter to SBA last week requesting residents, businesses, and certain non-profits be eligible to apply for assistance

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN), U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-IN), and U.S. Representative Trey Hollingsworth (IN-09) welcomed the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)’s announcement that residents, businesses, and certain non-profit organizations harmed by recent historic flooding in Washington County and surrounding counties can apply for disaster assistance loans. This relief also applies to 8 contiguous counties harmed by flooding: Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Jackson, Lawrence, Orange and Scott Counties. SBA’s Disaster Loan Program helps small businesses, residents, and non-profits get back on their feet as the region recovers. Donnelly, Young, and Hollingsworth sent a joint letter to SBA Administrator Linda McMahon last week requesting this assistance.

Donnelly, Young, and Hollingsworth said, jointly, “This is great news for the people and businesses who have been harmed by these devastating floods. We thank the SBA for taking quick action to ensure that Hoosiers in Salem and adjacent counties are eligible to get the relief they need to recover from recent flooding.”

The filing deadline for applications regarding physical property damage is August 11, 2017 and the deadline to return economic injury applications is March 12, 2018. To apply or for more information, click here.
