Low-interest Federal Disaster Loans for Private NonprofitsLow-interest federal disaster loans are now available to certain private nonprofit organizations in Iowa following President Trump’s federal disaster declaration for Public Assistance as a result of severe storms that occurred August 10, 2020.
Private nonprofits that provide essential services of a governmental nature are eligible for assistance. These low-interest federal disaster loans are available in 16 Iowa counties, including Johnson County.
SBA may lend private nonprofits up to $2 million to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets. SBA can also lend additional funds to help with the cost of improvements to protect, prevent, or minimize the same type of disaster damage from occurring in the future.
For certain private nonprofit organizations of any size, SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans to help with meeting working capital needs caused by the disaster. Economic Injury Disaster Loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that cannot be paid because of the disaster’s impact.
