The deadline to file an SBA disaster loan application for physical damage is December 13, 2016, according to a news release from the SBA.

“Currently, 430 disaster loans have been approved in the amount of $14,680,800 for affected survivors,” said Frank Skaggs, director of SBA’s Field Operations Center East in Atlanta.  “We are pleased to get these loans approved so residents in the disaster area can start to rebuild and resume their normal lives.
