Posted by: Mario Hendricks - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery County Disaster Recovery Center (DRC), located at the Capitol Heights Community Center, 206 Federal Drive, Montgomery, closed at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 2nd.

Beginning Monday, July 6th, it will reopen as an SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center (DLOC) on the site to service Autauga, Bullock, Elmore and Montgomery counties. Hours of operation will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday until July 16 at 6 p.m.

"Assisting individuals to recover from a disaster is our primary mission. We are encouraging anyone affected by this disaster to visit the center and obtain personal assistance with completing their loan applications," said Frank Skaggs, director of SBA Field Operations Center East. 

SBA loans are the primary source of long-term recovery assistance. Completing the SBA loan application is required to be considered for some types of federal disaster assistance.

Anyone unable to visit the center may obtain information and loan applications by calling the SBA's Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955 (or 800-877-8339 for the hearing impaired) Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., EDT, or by sending an email to disastercustomerservice@sba.gov. Business loan applications may be downloaded from www.sba.gov/services/disasterassistance. Applications may be returned to the DLOC or mailed to: U. S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, Texas, 76155.

Those affected by the disaster may apply for disaster loans from SBA's secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/.

FEMA's temporary housing assistance and grants for public transportation expenses, medical and dental expenses, and funeral and burial expenses do not require individuals to apply for an SBA loan. However, applicants who receive SBA loan applications must submit them to SBA loan officers to be eligible for assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement, and moving and storage expenses.

FEMA leads and supports the nation in a risk-based, comprehensive emergency management system of preparedness, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation, to reduce the loss of life and property and protect the nation from all hazards including natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disasters.

Disaster recovery assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status.  If you or someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-FEMA (3362). For TTY call 800-462-7585.
