US Small Business Administration issues disaster declaration for NC small businesses

Coronavirus

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The U.S. Small Business Administration has granted Gov. Roy Cooper’s request for a disaster declaration for small businesses being impacted by COVID-19.

The declaration will benefit small businesses across the state that are suffering economic losses due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Many small businesses are desperate right now and this SBA approval will help,” said Cooper in a news release. “Even more is needed and we will continue to push for additional assistance while we work to protect the health of North Carolinians.”

Effected businesses will be able to apply for low interest SBA disaster loans.

Applicants can head to the SBA’s disaster loan website to apply online.

Businesses and individuals can also get information and loan applications by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 or 1-800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, or by emailing disastercustomerservice@sba.gov. Loan application forms can also be downloaded here.
