Hurricane Ian: Small Business Disaster Assistance

Have questions or need assistance due to losses your small business suffered from Hurricane Ian? Help is here.

We are currently working closely with the SBA and state to open Business Recovery Centers (BRCs) in counties impacted by Hurricane Ian. At a BRC, SBA and SBDC disaster specialists will be available to answer questions about available disaster loans and help small business owners with their disaster applications. As these locations become available, we will share them below.

Please note, due to the widespread impacts of Hurricane Ian, we are receiving an extraordinarily high volume of inquiries and doing our best to provide the highest level of personalized service to every request received. If you get voicemail, please leave a message and be patient with us as we work through our backlog and respond to your request for assistance.

We appreciate your understanding and will do everything we can to assist your business during these unprecedented times.
