Home & Property Disaster Loans
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) offers affordable financial help to homeowners and renters in a declared disaster area. You don't need to own a business. Help is available in the form of low-interest, long-term loans for losses not fully covered by insurance or other means. You may borrow up to $200,000 to repair or replace your primary home to its pre-disaster condition. But you can't use the loan to upgrade or add on to the home, unless required by building authority or code.
