Nonprofits in 12 W.Va. counties eligible for disaster loans for April storm damage


CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Disaster loans are being offered to nonprofit organizations in a dozen West Virginia counties that sustained damage from severe weather in April.

The U.S. Small Business Administration says private nonprofits that don't provide critical services of a governmental nature can apply for the low-interest disaster loans. The loans are available for nonprofits in Braxton, Brooke, Doddridge, Gilmer, Jackson, Lewis, Marshall, Ohio, Pleasants, Ritchie, Tyler and Wetzel counties.

The loans are for physical property or economic injury damage caused by severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides on April 8 through April 11.

The deadline to apply for loans for physical property damage is July 17. Nonprofits have until Feb. 18, 2016, to apply for economic injury loans.
