Help available to residents affected by flooding

Anyone impacted by Mississippi's recent natural disasters can receive help applying for federal money.

Federal officials from both FEMA and SBA Disaster Assistance know about several disaster recovery centers across the state.

The DRC's are set up with staff members who can help victims register for federal money through FEMA and low interest SBA disaster assistance. SBA disaster assistance allows qualified individuals and businesses to apply for low interest loans.

"We can help homeowners with up to $200,000 for repairing the structure we can help homeowners and renters with up to $40,000 for personal property, such as furniture, clothing automobiles, those types of things and then businesses can borrow up to $2 million," said Matt young with SBA Assistance.
