Was your Pinellas business impacted by Hurricane Hermine?
Florida’s Emergency Bridge Loans and SBA Loans are Available
Florida businesses that have been impacted by Hurricane Hermine may now apply for short-term, interest-free loans through the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program. The bridge loan program helps bridge the gap for small businesses between the time impact occurs and when other resources become available, including insurance claims or federal assistance. The deadline to apply is October 31, 2016.
Low interest loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration are also available to help with residential or business losses not covered by insurance. Information on SBA disaster loans may be obtained by calling (800) 659-2955 and (800) 877-8339 (TTY) or by going online. The Small Business Administration filing deadline to return applications for physical property damage is Nov. 28, 2016. The deadline to return economic injury applications is June 28, 2017.
