They cannot be used to expand or upgrade businesses and cannot exceed the verified uninsured disaster loss. Homeowners and renters may also be eligible for SBA loans to repair or replace disaster-related damages to homes or personal property.

If you sustained physical damage to your business of any size, you may be eligible for up to $2 million in Business Physical Disaster Loans for the repair or replacement of real estate, inventories, machinery, equipment and all other physical losses.

If you are a homeowner or renter, FEMA may refer you to the SBA to apply for low-interest loans to replace or repair disaster-damaged real estate and personal property including automobiles.

The deadline to apply for SBA physical damage loans is October 10, 2023.
