DISASTER ASSISTANCE LOANS FROM THE SBA
The U.S. SBA announced disaster assistance loans for up to $2 million for small businesses. These low-interest loans are available to businesses that have sustained “substantial economic injury”. These loans can be used to pay off outstanding debts, payroll and any other bills they are unable to pay.
