ATLANTA – The U.S. Small Business Administration reminds Private Non-Profit Organizations (PNPs) in Michigan that March 18, 2014 is the deadline to submit Economic Injury Disaster Loan applications.  These loans are available from the SBA as a result of the flooding that occurred between April 16 and May 14, 2013.
