After getting denied any help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Cayuga County Administrator J. Justin Woods says the Small Business Administration Disaster Declaration is offering help to folks who suffered damage from intense storms last summer. SBA Administrator Linda McMahon says businesses and residents in southern Cayuga County affected by the severe storms that caused flooding in July can apply for low-interest disaster loans.
SBA’s offer comes at Governor Cuomo’s request. Woods says he appreciates the governor’s assistance, and adds the county hopes the SBA will be able to provide relief to people affected by Mother Nature’s fury.
Officials from the SBA will be on hand to answer questions at the Moravia Fire Department on Keeler Avenue in Moravia starting on Tuesday morning from 11 to three o’clock. SBA representatives will be at the department on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from nine o’clock to 5:30, Saturday from 10 o’clock to two o’clock, the following Monday from nine o’clock to 5:30, and finally on Tuesday the 27th from nine o’clock to 3:30.
