Governor Authorizes Additional $250,000 in Disaster Relief Funds for Storm Victims

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Beebe has issued a proclamation authorizing an additional $250,000 from the Governor's Disaster Fund to assist victims of the February 24 tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in southeast Arkansas.

Loan assistance from the U.S. Small Business Administration is still available for storm victims. 

Homeowners may apply for loans up to $200,000 to repair and replace damaged or destroyed real estate.  Loans up to $40,000 are available to homeowners and renters to replace personal property. 

Small-business owners may also apply for Economic Injury Disaster Loans to help meet capital needs caused by the storms, regardless of whether the business suffered property damage.
