ATLANTA, GA (LEX 18) The U.S. Small Business Administration announced Tuesday that certain Private NonProfit organizations in Kentucky that do not provide critical services of a governmental nature may be eligible to apply for low-interest rate disaster loans.
PNPs located in the counties of Bell, Breathitt, Clay, Estill, Floyd, Harlan, Johnson, Knott, Knox, Lawrence, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Metcalfe, Owsley, Perry, Pike, Powell, Whitley and Wolfe in Kentucky are eligible to apply. Examples of eligible non-critical PNP organizations include, but are not limited to food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools and colleges.
SBA said this is because of the Presidential Disaster Declaration for Public Assistance from the damage caused by severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides, from February 9-February 14.
PNP organizations should call their county’s emergency manager to see if they should be referred to SBA for disaster loan assistance.
