As of Tuesday, August 11, 2015
Small, nonfarm businesses in 13 Idaho counties and neighboring counties in Montana, Oregon and Washington are now eligible to apply for low interest federal disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). These loans offset economic losses because of reduced revenues caused by the drought in the following primary counties that began July 28.
Primary Idaho counties include Boundary, Idaho, Lewis, Nez Perce and Valley. Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela. The deadline to apply for these loans is April 5, 2016.
