Non-Profit Groups Have Until Dec. 2 To Apply For Federal Disaster Aid

The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding eligible private non-profit organizations in Pennsylvania of the December 2 deadline to submit disaster loan applications for damages caused by severe storms, tornadoes and flooding between June 26 and July 11, 2013.  
Examples of eligible non-critical PNP organizations include, but are not limited to food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools and colleges.
These loans are available to PNPs in Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Crawford, Fayette, Huntingdon, Jefferson, Lawrence, Venango and Wayne counties in Pennsylvania.
The SBA offers low interest disaster loans to private non-profit organizations for physical losses up to its loan limits.  Approved loans can be increased for protective measures to lessen similar future damages.  
Additionally, PNPs can obtain loans for unmet working capital needs.  To be considered for this assistance, PNPs need to apply by the deadline.
Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application via SBA's secure website.
Disaster loan information and application forms may also be obtained by calling the SBA's Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955 (800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) or by sending an email to:
Applications can also be downloaded from the SBA's website.
Completed applications should be mailed to: U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155.
The filing deadline to return applications for physical property damage is December 2, 2013.  The deadline to return economic injury applications is July 1, 2014.
