SBA offering loans for homes, businesses impacted by blizzard

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — If you still need help after a blizzard hit western New York just before Christmas, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is offering some solutions.

Jim Accurso, a public information specialist with the SBA, joined us to detail the types of loans people can get for their home, business or other property.

Two outreach centers have opened in western New York. They’re at the Erie County Training & Operations Center (3359 Broadway, Cheektowaga) and the Delavan Grider Community Center (877 E. Delavan Ave., Buffalo) through March 14.

There’s a deadline of April 28 to apply for a loan through the SBA and businesses can receive up to $2 million. In terms of personal property, including vehicles, homeowners can get up to $200,000 and renters can receive up to $40,000.

Accurso tells us there’s no fee to apply, and interest is deferred for the first year. The centers are open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
