Missouri Small Business & Technology Development Centers offer assistance to businesses seeking federal flood recovery resources

August 9, 2017

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.—The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) in partnership with the Missouri Small Business & Technology Development Centers (MO SBTDC) throughout the state want to remind businesses that MO SBTDC staff will assist disaster impacted businesses with the completion of paperwork for the Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster loan applications.

In order to fill out an SBA disaster loan application, a business must fill out the proper paperwork. MO SBTDC is offering its professional expertise and assistance to streamline the process. It is important that businesses can get back to running their business and can do so while still applying for a loan to help them rebuild from Missouri’s recent disaster.

August 14, 2017 is the deadline for SBA disaster loans associated with physical property damage. March 2, 2018 is the SBA disaster loans deadline for economic injury loans. 

Several centers that currently cover the impacted areas of disaster include the following:
