[ARCHIVED] SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to Those Affected By the Remnants of Tropical Storm Ida

US Small Business Administration

FREDERICK, MD – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will provide disaster assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, businesses, non-profits and co-ops, who apply and qualify. The SBA made the loans available in response to a disaster declaration request by Governor Larry Hogan. The declaration includes Frederick County as a covered entity. 


These loans can be used to repair or replace real estate, personal property including vehicles, inventory, equipment and more. If your loan is approved, you may also be eligible for additional funding towards the cost of improvements to protect your property against future damages from a similar disaster. 


It is not required to apply in person for assistance. Loan applications and program information can be found at, by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 (TTY/TTD 1-800-877-8339), or by e-mailing Applicants should apply under SBA declaration #17229. Applications for physical property damage will be accepted now through December 17, 2021. Applications for economic injury will be accepted now through July 18, 2022.
