Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan
The Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program supports businesses impacted by disaster by providing short-term, interest-free loans to small businesses that experienced physical or economic damage during the storm. The program bridges the gap between the time a major catastrophe hits and when a business has secured longer-term recovery resources, such as sufficient profits from a revived business, receipt of payments on insurance claims or federal disaster assistance.
