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

That’s after the U.S. Small Business Administration granted Gov. Mike Pence’s request for aid after several tornadoes ripped through the state on Nov. 17.

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.

Loan applications may be downloaded here and sent to U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155.
