Small businesses affected by the Baltimore bridge collapse now have the opportunity to apply for disaster assistance through the Small Business Administration (SBA). This support is critical to helping small businesses recover and continue operating during this challenging time.

Governor Wes Moore and Senator Ben Cardin recently visited one of two locations where business owners can apply for assistance in Southeast Baltimore. During their visit, they emphasized the importance of the offered loans with low interest, with a term of 30 years and no immediate burden or obligations during the first year. This allows small business owners and independent contractors to maintain their businesses despite a decrease in income.

The SBA encourages business owners to apply for assistance as soon as possible, even if they are unsure of the full extent of the impact a collapse may have on their business. This is because the deadline to apply for disaster relief is December 30, and missing it could result in lost opportunities for recovery.
