Disaster assistance granted for two Oklahoma counties impacted by storms

BRYAN CO., Okla. – After severe storms hit several counties across Oklahoma last month, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has granted two Oklahoma counties disaster assistance.

The assistance provides low-interest disaster loans for homeowners, renters and business owners in those counties. The loans can be used to repair or replace any property that was damaged by the storm and was not covered by insurance.

The loans are also available to businesses that suffered economic losses due to the storm.

Under SBA rules, the contiguous counties of Atoka, Choctaw, Coal, Haskell, Hughes, Johnston, Latimer, Marshall, McIntosh, and Pushmataha are also eligible for assistance.

Disaster Loan Outreach Centers will open in Bryan, Pittsburg, and Atoka counties, where SBA officials will be available to help with applications, explain the process, and answer questions.
