Disaster Relief for Small Businesses: Low Interest Loans from the SBA

Small businesses that experienced damage due to Hurricane Katrina may be able to receive a low interest loan through the U.S. Small Business Administration. Visit the SBA website for details on how to apply or call 800-621-FEMA (3362).

An SBA Disaster Business Loan Application may be made for up to $1.5 million at rates as low as 4% and terms up to 30 years. If you are a small business affected by Hurricane Katrina or have family or friends who have been affected, visit the SBA website ASAP to get the process rolling for yourself or your loved ones.

StartupNation is proud of the entrepreneurs and small business owners who help drive our economy and who are working to rebuild the great city of New Orleans and the hurricane-affected areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
