LINCOLN, Neb.-- Gov. Dave Heineman and the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency were notified Thursday by the U.S. Small Business Association of an administrative declaration of a disaster for Stanton County which was affected by tornadoes, high winds and flooding that occurred from June 14 through June 21.

As a result of the declaration, low-interest federal disaster loans are now available to residents and business owners in Stanton County and the neighboring counties of Colfax, Cuming, Madison, Pierce, Platte and Wayne.

Gov. Heineman submitted a request to the SBA on Tuesday, July 29, to help Nebraskans who were impacted by the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding. SBA acted under its own authority to declare a disaster following the July 28 denial of the state’s request for a major disaster declaration.

“Nebraskans truly appreciate the approval of the SBA assistance following the June storms,” Heineman said. “The low-interest federal disaster loans available to homeowners, renters and businesses will provide needed assistance in the recovery of the affected communities.”

SBA representatives will staff a Disaster Loan Outreach Center to answer questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, explain the application process and help each individual complete their application:
