Not Enough Business, Home Damage for SBA Help in Burlington

Bad news for those hoping for help from the Small Business Administration with their flood damage:


Des Moines County Emergency Management Coordinator Gina Hardin says not enough businesses nor individuals were significantly impacted to trigger an SBA assessment. The federal government agency requires a minimum of 25 and Des Moines County is at least 11 short, based on what the state damage assessor was shown earlier this week.


Hardin urges anyone who’s had serious damage from flooding to contact her office at 753-8206.
