Welcome to the Town of Hamilton
ANNOUNCEMENT ON DISASTER RELIEF:
NYS was unsuccessful in obtaining a Presidential disaster declaration for the storms from July 2017, however, the U.S. Small Business Association did approve Governor Cuomo’s request for support. Residents and businesses affected by these storms can apply for Low-Interest Disaster Loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
The SBA granted this request for a Physical Disaster Declaration for 21 Counties, including Madison. This, following a weather system that brought severe storms and flash flooding from excessive rainfall that quickly overwhelmed roadways, homes and businesses from July 1 through July 24, 2017. The application deadline for physical damage is April 16, 2018. An SBA fact sheet on this can be found at: https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/Declarations/ViewDisasterDocument/1383
The following groups may be eligible for help from SBA loans for the following:
• Homeowners: up to $200,000 to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate
• Homeowners and renters: up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged or destroyed personal property
• Business owners: up to $2 million for the replacement of real estate, inventories, machinery, equipment, and other physical losses
• Businesses and non-profits: Economic Injury Disaster Loans of up to $2 million to provide necessary working capital until normal operations resume after a disaster
Interest rates can be as low as 1.938 percent for homeowners and renters, 2.5 percent for non-profit organizations and 3.215 percent for businesses with terms up to 30 years. Loan amounts and terms are set by the SBA and are based on each applicant’s financial condition. Individuals and businesses may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application via SBA’s secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.
