1.  FEMA help for a small business

Posted 14 days ago
Hi All,
I just heard from a small business client on the west coast of Florida that his business location was destroyed during the hurricane.  Is anyone aware of any program that can help him with funding to get back up and running?
Thanks so much.
Sandy

Sandra –

 

FYI - My office realty (I owned a small office building in Rye, NY at the time), all my office furniture, fixtures, and equipment (including my computers and an expensive copy machine), my hardcopy tax library going back to 1913, and all my client files were totally decimated by flood waters on April 15, 2007. I've forgotten the name of the storm but, I literally lost everything. FEMA helped residential properties in the area and in other towns and parts of Westchester County but not small businesses. They did however, offer to extend me loan monies, which I had declined. From my personal experience, FEMA may not be of help when it comes to small business other than offering a loan.

 

Thank you, Ed Heben
