November 29 Filing Deadline for WV SBA Loans for June 2017


Deadline  Approaching  in  West Virginia for  SBA  Working Capital  Loans for June 2017 Drought and Excessive Heat
ATLANTA - The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private nonprofit organizations located in Hardy County, West Virginia that Nov. 29 is the filing deadline for federal economic injury disaster loans as a result of drought and excessive heat that began on June 30, 2017.
“This county is eligible because it is contiguous to one or more primary counties in Virginia. The Small Business Administration recognizes that disasters do not usually stop at county or state lines. For that reason, counties adjacent to primary counties named in the declaration are included,” said Kem Fleming, director of SBA’s Field Operations Center East in Atlanta.
Under this declaration, the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program is available to eligible farm-related and nonfarm-related entities that suffered financial losses as a direct result of this disaster. With the exception of aquaculture enterprises, SBA cannot provide disaster loans to agricultural producers, farmers, or ranchers, but nurseries are eligible to apply for EIDLs for losses caused by drought conditions.
The loans are for working capital and can be up to $2 million with interest rates of 3.215 percent for eligible small businesses and 2.5 percent for nonprofit organizations, and terms up to 30 years.
