Financial assistance may be available from The U.S. Small Business Administration for businesses and organizations affected by the recent Lewiston mass shootings.
The USBA is offering low-interest, long-term economic injury disaster loans for businesses that experienced financial setbacks because of the shootings or lockdown.
From the USBA:
The declaration covers Androscoggin County and the adjacent counties of Cumberland, Franklin, Kennebec, Oxford, and Sagadahoc in Maine, and applies to small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small aquaculture businesses and private nonprofit organizations. Eligible applicants in the declared area can now apply for low-interest, long-term economic injury disaster loans from the SBA to cover working capital needs as the community recovers.
