12 Kentucky counties added to February storm eligibility
Twelve Kentucky counties have been added to those in which private, nonprofit organizations are eligible to seek disaster loans for damages from severe weather in February.
The new counties are Adair, Anderson, Butler, Edmonson, Franklin, Lewis, Lincoln, Magoffin, McCracken, Rockcastle, Union and Woodford.
The U.S. Small Business Administration says the deadline to apply for a disaster loan for physical damages was June 29, but organizations in the added counties may submit an application late and explain that they weren't previously aware of eligibility. Economic injury disaster loans are also available for organizations for unmet working capital needs. The economic injury loan deadline is Feb. 1.
Examples of eligible organizations include food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers and schools.
