SBA to open disaster centers for Madison, other counties, on Tuesday

ELWOOD, Ind. — In order to help Hoosiers through the disaster loan process, the U.S. Small Business Administration will open Disaster Centers in Grant, Howard, Madison and Tipton counties.

Low-interest disaster loans are available to residents, businesses, and non-profit organizations in Blackford, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Delaware, Grant, Hamilton, Howard, Huntington, Madison, Miami, Tipton, Wabash and Wells counties. Hoosiers in these counties can apply by visiting any one of the four centers or online.

All four centers will open Tuesday, May 14 at 9 a.m. Each center will be open for two weeks, expect for the Madison County office, which will be open for one week only. Locations and hours are provided below.

Members of the SBA will be on hand to take questions and aid residents, small businesses, and non-profit organizations in the disaster loan process. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security will also have staff at the centers to provide flood victims with information about the Indiana State Disaster Relief Fund. Grants of up to $5,000 may be available for Hoosiers who suffered flood damage, but may not be eligible for a federal loan.
