The entire state of Indiana is a declared disaster area meaning any business located in Indiana is eligible to apply. The SBA Disaster Loan Program provides economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue. Loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. If the loan is funded and additional funds are required, shortly thereafter the business can apply for an increase in the disaster loan. Turnaround time is 3 weeks or more, subject to SBA application volume. Businesses interested can apply directly to the SBA here.
