WASHINGTON, D.C. — New federal assistance is available to Ohioans that experienced financial loss due to excessive rain, flooding and flash flooding that occurred in May 2012. The United States Small Business Administration (SBA) will make available federal, low-interest disaster loans to agricultural cooperatives, small aquaculture businesses, most private non-profit organizations, and small business owners in Athens, Gallia, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton counties who were affected by the severe weather.

“Small business owners in these Ohio counties can now access resources needed to recover from severe storms that swept through the area last year — which may have impacted their business through no fault of their own,” Sen, Sherrod Brown said. “These loans will help Ohio agricultural co-ops, non-profits, and small businesses rebuild and get back on their feet.”
