For homeowners and renters, the SBA is your primary source of federal funds for long-term recovery. Low-interest SBA disaster loans up to $200,000 are available to qualified homeowners to repair or replace damaged real estate. In addition, up to $40,000 may be available to homeowners and renters to repair or replace damaged personal property. (In both cases, the SBA disaster loans can be made only for damages not covered by insurance.)
