County residents eligible for loans to help repair damage from storm, flood

Indiana residents and businesses affected by severe storms and flooding April 17 through 23 can apply for low-interest disaster loans from the United States Small Business Administration.

The loans became available following a disaster declaration requested by Gov. Mike Pence covering 14
Hoosier counties, including Huntington County.

An SBA disaster loan outreach center opened May 14 at the Marion City Hall, 301 S. Branson St., Marion, and will remain open through May 23. SBA customer service representatives will answer questions about the program and help individuals complete applications.
