)-- SBA LOAN AND DISASTER RELIEF is a non governmental entity representing companies in obtaining Economic Injury Disaster Loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. "We have announced today publically that applications are available for many counties in North Carolina. We are striving to get the word out to the many businesses that have been effected economically and do not even know there is assistance available," states Lane Manning, Executive Director of SBA LOAN AND DISASTER RELIEF. "The biggest challenge we deal with is the publicity for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration. I have yet to meet a single applicant that had any knowledge of the program," Manning adds. The Economic Injury Disaster Program is separate from the property claims commonly filed by individuals for their homes and companies for asset damage. This loan which is processed, approved, funded and serviced by the SBA has occasionally been offered by the government to companies already filing a claim for property damage but seldom and in small amounts according to SBA LOAN AND DISASTER RELIEF. The stand alone Economic Injury Disaster Loan referred to as "idle" loans by SBA Agency personnel can be applied for without sustaining any physical damage from the disaster.
"That is the purpose of our company," says DWayne Scott, Director of Administration of the private entity that represents other companies before the SBA. "Our job is to get the word out and make the assistance available in a timely manner with the help of our experience," the company official stated. "The company is comprised of individuals with twenty and thirty years of experience and have processed hundreds of SBA loans throughout the years," Scott continued." Some employees have been SBA trainers in previous assignments," concluded the Director of Administration. The Disaster Declaration in discussion is NC-0041, Disaster Declaration #12990and #12991 and is available in Avery, Cleveland, Rutherford, Caldwell, Lincoln, Catawba, and McDowell counties with the primary county of Burke also covered by the disaster program.
