City of McAllen Emergency Management officials are reminding businesses that the deadline to apply for disaster relief for damage related to the severe thunderstorm, large hail and straight-line winds of April 28, 2023 is fast approaching.  The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Disaster Recovery & Resilience federal disaster loan for economic injury is available to small non-farm businesses, small agricultural cooperative, small businesses engage in aquacultures and most private non-profit organizations of any size may apply for Economic Injury Disaster Loans of up to $2 million to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster.    

Associate Administrator Francisco Sánchez of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Disaster Recovery & Resilience today reminded Texas small businesses of the Feb. 22, 2024, deadline to apply for an SBA federal disaster loan for economic injury caused by severe storms, thunderstorms, large hail and straight-line winds in Hidalgo County that occurred April 28, 2023.

“While many local businesses may have moved on from the devastating storm back in April of 2023, others may have forgotten or even not realized that this assistance was still available,” said McAllen Emergency Management Coordinator and Assistant City Manager Jeff Johnston.  “We encourage our small businesses that are still feeling the impact from that storm to reach out to the SBA and have a conversation with them before the assistance deadline.” 

These low-interest loans are available to businesses in Brooks, Cameron, Hidalgo, Kenedy, Starr and Willacy counties.
