MA 13431 - SBA’s Deadline for Physical Damage Disaster Loans for Private Non-Profit Organizations in Massachusetts is February 19

ATLANTA – The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding eligible private non-profit (PNP) organizations in Massachusetts of the Feb. 19 deadline to submit disaster loan applications for damages caused by Hurricane Sandy.  Examples of eligible non-critical PNP organizations include, but are not limited to food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools and colleges.
 
PNPs located in Barnstable, Barnstable, Bristol, Dukes, Nantucket, Plymouth and Suffolk counties in Massachusetts that provide non-critical services are eligible to apply.  Examples of eligible non-critical PNP organizations include, but are not limited to food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools and colleges.
 
The SBA offers low interest disaster loans to private non-profit organizations for physical losses up to its loan limits.  Approved loans can be increased for protective measures to lessen similar future damages.  Additionally, PNPs can obtain loans for unmet working capital needs.  To be considered for this assistance, PNPs need to apply by the deadline.
 
Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure website at SBA’s website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.
 
Disaster loan information and application forms may also be obtained by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955 (800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) or by sending an email to disastercustomerservice@sba.gov. Applications can also be downloaded from the SBA’s website at www.sba.gov. Completed applications should be mailed to: U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155.
