Summary by Dirk Langeveld
The first deadline for disaster relief related to the remnants of Hurricane Ida is approaching, and the U.S. Small Business Administration Connecticut District Office is urging affected businesses not to miss it.
The storm, which passed through the region in early September, caused widespread flooding. Businesses in Fairfield, New Haven, and New London counties, including the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Mohegan Tribal Nation, are eligible for both Physical and Economic Injury Disaster Loans. Businesses in the remaining counties in Connecticut can apply only for EIDL relief.
The filing deadline for physical property damage is Dec. 29. Applications for EIDL relief can be filed through Aug. 1, 2022.
Four sites have been established in Connecticut for business owners to receive local disaster assistance:
- Darien Library, Darien
- Addison Corporate Center, Windsor
- Three Rivers Community College, Norwich
- Bridgeport Main Public Library, Bridgeport
Business owners can also receive application assistance by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955, e-mailing email@example.com, or visiting disasterloanassistance.sba.gov/ela.
