The Hunts Point Economic Development Corporation is proud to announce the opening of an SBA Business Recovery Center at its Bronx Women's Business Resource Center offices in the Fordham section of the Bronx.
This Center will provide one-on-one help to business owners seeking disaster assistance for losses caused by Hurricane Sandy that began on Oct. 27.
"I am pleased that we are able to assist the business community by working with SBA to provide space as needed in this relief effort" stated Josephine Infante, CEO and Founder of Hunts Point Economic Development Corporation.
"Businesses with physical damages or loss of revenue should consider visiting the Women's Business Center and applying for an SBA disaster business loan," said Marcia Cameron, Director of the Bronx Women's Business Resource Center.
SBA's customer service representatives are on hand at the Center to answer questions about the disaster loan program and assist business owners in completing their applications.

Businesses and non-profit organizations of any size may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets.
The SBA may increase a loan up to 20 percent of the total amount of disaster damage to real estate and/or leasehold improvements, as verified by SBA, to make improvements that lessen the risk of property damage by future disasters of the same kind.
For small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture, and most private non-profit organizations, the SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster. Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any physical property damage.
Interest rates are as low as 3 percent for non-profit organizations and 4 percent for businesses with terms up to 30 years. Loan amounts and terms are set by the SBA and are based on each applicant's financial condition.
