WASHINGTON – New Jersey businesses and residents affected by severe storms and flooding on Aug. 11-13, 2018, can apply for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, Administrator Linda McMahon announced today. Administrator McMahon made the loans available in response to a letter from Gov. Phil Murphy on Oct. 18, requesting a disaster declaration by the SBA.
The declaration covers Ocean and Passaic counties, and the adjacent counties of Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Essex, Monmouth, Morris, and
Sussex in New Jersey; Orange and Rockland in New York.
“The SBA is strongly committed to providing the people of New Jersey with the most effective and customer-focused response possible to assist businesses of all sizes, homeowners and renters with federal disaster loans,” said McMahon. “Getting businesses and communities up and running after a disaster is our highest priority at SBA.”
