Loans Available For Flood Victims

Folks affected by Flash floods in our area back in July will be able to apply for low-interest loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration due to a disaster declaration. Homeowners, renters, and businesses in Columbia, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Luzerne and Carbon Counties can apply. The money can be used to repair or replace damaged or destroyed homes and businesses. Information is available by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955.
