ALBANY, NY – To continue serving disaster survivors affected by Hurricane Irene in New York, a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Disaster Loan Outreach Center (DLOC) will open Friday, October 14, in Schoharie.
SBA representatives at the DLOC will provide homeowners, renters, business owners and nonprofit organizations with face-to-face service in answering questions about SBA’s low-interest disaster loans, completing loan applications and closing on SBA loans.
