Are you a small business owner and need help following Hurricane Irma?
In Monroe County, there are two Business Recovery Centers, run by the U.S. Small Business Administration. They are located at:
• Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce, 12222 Overseas Highway
• Big Pine Key Community Park, 31009 Atlantis Drive.
You may be eligible for a Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan.
It is a short-term, interest-free working capital loan intended to help small businesses “bridge the gap” between the time of a declared disaster and when the business has secured long-term recovery resources, such as insurance proceeds or federal disaster assistance.
Small business owners with two to 100 employees (note: the business owner counts as an employee) can apply for a bridge loan of up to $50,000. These interest-free loans are granted for terms of 90 or 180 days.
