TALLAHASSEE – Florida emergency management officials today announced that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has approved disaster loan funds for Bradford County residents and businesses in response to a tornado, severe storms and flooding that occurred on January 21.

On January 29, Governor Charlie Crist sent a letter to SBA Administrator Karen Mills, requesting a disaster declaration. The declaration covers Bradford County and the adjacent counties of Alachua, Baker, Clay, Putnam and Union.

The SBA offers loans of up to $200,000 to homeowners to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate. Homeowners and renters are eligible for loans of up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged or destroyed personal property. Interest rates are as low as 2.625 percent for homeowners and renters, three percent for non-profits and four 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.
