SBA Is Ready To Help Victims Of Hurricane Harvey With Disaster Loans

I have long maintained that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is the country's most effective government agency. Its mission is to help strengthen the economy by enabling the establishment and growth of small businesses and by assisting the economic recovery of communities following disasters, such as Hurricane Harvey, which devastated Texas this weekend. The SBA is making low-interest disaster loans available to businesses in and around the Houston area that have been impacted by the hurricane and catastrophic flooding.

Applying for a Business Loan? Make Sure Your Personal Information Is Protected

When applying for financing from either the Small Business Administration (SBA) or a traditional lender, the most convenient option is to apply online. In the early stage of the application, you do not need to provide any private information or documentation as long as you know your financial picture. Additionally, I do not recommend providing your personal phone number if you can avoid it.
