Some places for to turn for post-flood assistance:

  • Small Business Administration Loans. Businesses and individuals may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela. They may also obtain information and loan applications by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 (1-800-877-8339 for the deaf and  hard-of-hearing), or by emailing disastercustomerservice@sba.gov.

  • USDA Rural Development. This agency’s Direct Home Loan Program offers financing to qualified very-low and low income applicants that are unable to obtain traditional financing. Applicants must meet income and credit guidelines and demonstrate repayment ability. The maximum loan amount for repair is $20,000 at a 1 percent interest rate, repayable for up to 20 years. Grants of up to $7,500 are available to homeowners 62 and older and must be used to remove health or safety hazards, such as fixing a leaking roof, installing indoor plumbing or replacing a furnace.
