BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — The state of Alabama is seeking assistance from the U.S. Small Business Administration to support the recovery from last week’s heavy rainfall and flooding, the state emergency management agency announced today.
“Several counties suffered significant damage to individual homes and businesses from flooding that began on April 6, 2014 and continued until flood waters receded.
If the SBA request is granted, homeowners, renters and business owners will have access to low-interest disaster loans,” the announcement stated.
The declaration will benefit Jefferson, Bibb, Blount, Shelby, St. Clair, Tuscaloosa and Walker counties.
