ATLANTA – The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small aquaculture businesses and most private nonprofit organizations in West Virginia of the deadline to submit disaster loan applications for economic injury caused by the severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides on June 22-29, 2016.  The deadline to apply for a working capital disaster loan is March 27, 2017.
“We urge businesses that suffered economic losses as a result of the disaster and want to apply for
