From the Columbia Chamber:
Yesterday, Missouri's disaster relief declaration was approved and processed by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Small businesses and nonprofits statewide can now apply for SBA's Disaster Relief Loans. Please note, these loans are issued by SBA directly and not through a bank as other SBA loans are done.
Applicants may apply online, receive additional disaster assistance information, and download applications here. Applicants may also call SBA's Customer Service Center at (800) 659-2955 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on SBA disaster assistance. Individuals who are deaf or hard‑of‑hearing may call (800) 877-8339. Completed applications should be mailed to U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155.
If you are not sure if your business meets the requirements, you are still encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted until December 21, 2020.
If the SBA website does not load properly, try again later. Naturally, there is a high volume of visitors that might cause the site to be slow. Borrowers are encouraged to apply during non-peak hours (7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.).
More information on the process can be found on SBA’s website here or the SBA Disaster Assistance in Response to Coronavirus flyer attached to this email. Please note, the attached Economic Injury Worksheet must be completed by the small business or nonprofit in need of financial assistance. The worksheet is not an application for a loan.
