BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – In about half an hour, survivors of the recent tornadoes in Alabama can make a big difference in their recovery by applying for a low-interest loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration. The process isn’t hard at all. By returning the SBA loan application, homeowners may be eligible for up to $200,000 to repair or replace their storm-damaged home. Homeowners and renters may be eligible for up to $40,000 for replacement of personal property.
