SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), announced today that SBA will close its Business Recovery Centers (BRCs) in Greeley and Loveland on October 12 and October 16 respectively.  Until then, SBA customer service representatives and counselors from the Colorado Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) will continue to provide one-on-one service to those businesses affected by the severe storms, flooding, mudslides and landslides that occurred from September 11 – 30, 2013.

 “SBA and our partners at the Colorado Small Business Development Centers began opening the Business Recovery Centers on September 23 to meet with business owners who suffered property damage and economic losses as a result of the severe storms, flooding, mudslides and landslides,” said Alfred E. Judd, Director of SBA’s Field Operations Center West.  “Based on the success of the BRCs, we have concluded that this partnership has successfully met the current needs of the business community, and the centers are no longer necessary,” he added. 

“SBA customer service representatives will still be available at the following two BRCs and 12 Disaster recovery Centers to meet one-on-one with residents and business owners that have been affected by the disaster, answer their questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, help individuals and business owners apply online using our Electronic Loan Application, explain the application process and close their approved loans,” Judd continued. 

Colorado SBDC State Director Kelly Manning said, “Our SBDC counselors will also continue to provide free counseling on a wide variety of matters designed to help these businesses overcome the effects of the disaster and plan for their future. Services include assessing business economic injury, evaluating the business’s strength, cash flow projections and most importantly, reviewing all options to ensure each business makes decisions that are appropriate for its situation.  Business owners may find the location and phone number of the nearest SBDC by visiting the Colorado SBDC website at www.coloradoSBDC.org

Individuals and business owners can meet with SBA representatives on the days and times indicated.  No appointment is necessary.

“SBA’s low-interest, Federal disaster loans are available to homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private, nonprofit organizations to repair or replace their property damaged or destroyed by the disaster.  So far, SBA has approved more than $14.9 million in low-interest disaster loans to residents and businesses,” Judd said.

Disaster loans up to $200,000 are available to homeowners to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate.  Homeowners and renters are eligible for up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged or destroyed personal property.

Businesses of any size and private, nonprofit organizations may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets.  SBA can also lend additional funds to homeowners and businesses to help with the cost of making improvements that protect, prevent or minimize the same type of disaster damage from occurring in the future.

For small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture, and most private, nonprofit organizations of any size, SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster.  EIDL assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any property damage.

Interest rates can be as low as 1.937 percent for homeowners and renters, 2.875 percent for private, nonprofit organizations and 4 percent for businesses, with terms up to 30 years.  Loan amounts and terms are set by SBA and are based on each applicant’s financial condition.

Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure Web site at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela

Disaster loan information and application forms are also available from SBA’s Customer Service Center by calling (800) 659-2955 or e-mailing disastercustomerservice@sba.gov.  Individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing may call (800) 877-8339.  For more information about SBA’s disaster assistance programs, visit http://www.sba.gov/disaster. ">http://www.sba.gov/disaster. 

The filing deadline to return applications for property damage is November 14, 2013.  The deadline to return economic injury applications is June 16, 2014.
