SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to Nebraska Residents and Businesses Affected by Tornadoes, High Winds and Flooding

Gov. Dave Heineman and the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency were notified today by the U.S. Small Business Association of an administrative declaration of a disaster for Stanton County which was affected by tornadoes, high winds and flooding that occurred from June 14 through June 21.

As a result of the declaration, low-interest federal disaster loans are now available to residents and business owners in Stanton County and the neighboring counties of Colfax, Cuming, Madison, Pierce, Platte and Wayne.

Gov. Heineman submitted a request to the SBA on Tuesday, July 29, to help Nebraskans who were impacted by the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding. SBA acted under its own authority to declare a disaster following the July 28 denial of the states request for a major disaster declaration.
