Would Make Low-Interest, Long-Term Loans Available

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner announced he is requesting a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) physical disaster declaration for DeKalb County to help people and businesses in Fairdale and surrounding areas recover from the April 9 tornado.

“We continue to seek ways to assist people who lost their homes and businesses in the tornado,” said Governor Rauner. “I’m proud of how many people have donated their time or money to help with the recovery. If approved, these loans could be an important tool to help many tornado survivors rebuild their lives.”

The Governor’s request came after officials from the SBA, Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and local officials surveyed damage and documented uninsured losses. That survey found 31 homes and seven businesses sustained major damages and had significant uninsured losses. If approved, anyone affected by the April 9 tornadoes  in DeKalb County and those counties contiguous to it would be eligible to apply for a low-interest, long-term loan through the SBA.
