South Carolina businesses and residents affected by the severe storms and tornadoes on April 5-6, may apply for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman announced today.
Administrator Guzman made the loans available in response to a letter from South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster on April 15, requesting a disaster declaration by the SBA. Businesses and residents in the declared area can now apply for low-interest disaster loans from the SBA.
The declaration includes Allendale and Bamberg counties, and the adjacent counties of Barnwell, Colleton, Hampton, and Orangeburg in South Carolina; and Burke and Screven in Georgia.
SBA will open Disaster Loan Outreach Centers (DLOCs) in Allendale and Bamberg counties on Friday, April 22 at 11 a.m.
