ATLANTA – The U.S. Small Business Administration reminds Private Non-Profit Organizations (PNPs) in Rhode Island that August 5 is the deadline to submit Economic Injury Disaster Loan applications.  These loans are available from the SBA for damages caused by Hurricane Sandy between Oct. 26-31, 2012.
