The Small Business Administration has opened a second Disaster Loan Outreach Center in Hamden for the week of October 22 to assist people impacted by the May 15 tornadoes and severe storms.
According to the SBA, businesses and non-profits can borrow up to $2 million and loans between $40,000 and $200,000 are available for renters and homeowners to cover damage that was not covered by insurance.
“Any businesses that might have some economic injury as a result of the storms or any kind of physical or structural damage,” explained Victoria Munoz, who is with SBA. “The same thing for homeowners that might have suffered any personal property losses.”
SBA officials said they will assist people with their applications. The process takes about 20 minutes.
The Hamden location is at the Miller Memorial Center on Dixwell Avenue. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. It closes permanently, Monday, October 29.
