WILMINGTON, Del. – Today, U.S. Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons and U.S. Rep. John Carney (all D-Del.) reminded eligible private non-profit (PNP) organizations in Delaware of the Jan. 15, 2013, deadline to submit disaster loan applications to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) for damages caused by Hurricane Sandy.
Examples of eligible non-critical PNP organizations include, but are not limited to food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools and colleges. The SBA offers low interest disaster loans to private non-profit organizations for physical losses up to its loan limits. Approved loans can be increased for protective measures to lessen similar future damages. Additionally, PNPs can obtain loans for unmet working capital needs. To be considered for this assistance, PNPs need to apply by the deadline.
The filing deadline to return applications for physical property damage is Jan. 15, 2013. The deadline to return economic injury applications is Aug. 16, 2013.
