INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Hoosiers in 19 counties will now be able to get low interest federal disaster loans.

The loans are for any Hoosier, businesses and non-profit organization that needs to repair damage from the storm.

The following counties were granted the loan: Daviess, Fountain, Howard, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Dubois, Grant, Greene, Knox, Martin, Miami, Montgomery, Parke, Pike, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Vermillion, and Warren.

The deadline to apply for a loan is April 7. Return economic injury applications deadline is Nov. 5. Click here to apply.
