Staff Report~ 10/8/2014

PHOENIX – The Small Business Administration has formally declared a disaster stemming from the Sept. 8 storms in Maricopa County. Low-interest loans are available to county residents to help pay for storm damage repairs.

This declaration opens the door to low-interest loans for Maricopa County residents and business that were impacted by the severe storm and flooding. 

Board Chairman Denny Barney said that, “While Maricopa County and our municipal and state partners provided emergency response efforts in the wake of the record setting September 8 storm, the SBA loan program is an option for businesses and residents still needing assistance.”

The Small Business Administration has established service centers in three areas of the county:

  • Phoenix SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center, Travis L. Williams Family Services Center, 4732 S. Central Ave., in Phoenix, open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Mesa SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center, Fire Station 202, 830 S. Stapley Ave., in Mesa, open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Glendale SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center, Public Safety Facility, 6261 N. 83rd Ave., in Glendale, open Thursdays and Fridays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

 

“I’d encourage anyone who is rebuilding to contact one of the centers to find out more information,” said Barney.
