We got 20 inches of rain in 12 hours and several of those inches wound up in my basement. So then I started the process with FEMA and SBA to seek funding for replacement of the damage to my property. The SBA, during times of disasters, offers low-interest loans to homeowners, renters and businesses of all sizes. First, register with FEMA at the teleregistration number. That one teleregistration number registers you for FEMA and SBA disaster loan assistance. I started the FEMA process on the phone and I was able to constantly make contact with different representatives. People were contacting me. It was a very engaging back and forth process that was very well handled. If you���re referred to SBA for a disaster loan you will receive a loan application in the mail and the most important thing is if you get the application you should complete it and return it to SBA as soon as possible. Initially, I did my SBA loan application online and I didn���t immediately finish it all. I received a phone call from SBA and said hey, we noticed that you started to do your application do you need any assistance in completing it. I was like ���wow��� this is concierge-type service. A lot of times people think that they can���t afford another loan. If they truly can���t afford a loan, we will not approve the loan. And when we don���t approve the loan for a homeowner or renter, we refer them back to FEMA for any possible further grant assistance that FEMA might be able to provide. I���ve been granted funding through SBA and I���m still working with FEMA to get some additional documentation with them to see if it���s possible to get grant funding through them as well. It���s very disheartening when you���re going through all the flood stuff that���s happening. But it has been a great process in terms of having someone who feels like they understand and they���re willing to help.
