Rockland County businesses can now apply for low-interest disaster recovery loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
On St. Patrick’s Day, Sen. David Carlucci joined local small business owners in Rockland to call on the State and federal government to work together to offer access to the loans through the SBA.
Many businesses are now shuttered following the State’s mandated closure of malls, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, and gyms in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Small businesses that are severely financially impacted by the coronavirus can now apply for a loan of up to $2 million in assistance.
Senator David Carlucci said, “Our small businesses are being gravely impacted by the coronavirus,” said Carlucci. “We must offer them relief, and I applaud the State and federal government for working together to deliver access to these loans for Rockland and Westchester County small businesses.”
