The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (WVDHSEM) and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are providing grants, loans and other assistance in Lewis, Logan, McDowell, Mingo and Wyoming counties.
SBA representatives are at all Disaster Recovery Centers to answer any questions about the SBA’s low-interest disaster loans available to homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private non-profit organizations. SBA representatives are available to assist with completing and submitting disaster loan applications. State and Federal officials are urging those that have received loan applications from SBA to complete and return them as quickly as possible in order to continue the financial assistance process. If SBA is not able to approve a loan for a homeowner or renter, they will be referred back to FEMA for any possible grant assistance.
Applicants who receive SBA loan applications must complete and return them to be considered for FEMA assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement and moving and storage expenses.
FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
