I Was Told to Call the Small Business Administration

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has established a Virtual Disaster Loan Outreach Center for homeowners, renters and business owners to provide answers to questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, explain the application process and help each person complete their electronic loan application.

Virtual Business Recovery Center & Virtual Disaster Loan Outreach Center
Mondays – Fridays  |  9 a.m. – 6 p.m. |  FOCWAssistance@sba.gov |  (916) 735-1500
