New Business Recovery Centers open in Savannah, Brunswick

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - If you are still struggling to make ends meet after Hurricane Matthew, there's more help for you in Chatham and Glynn counties.

The Small Business Administration opened up two new Business Recovery Centers on Wednesday. They have experts on hand to give you loan information and help you apply for loans.

This isn't just for businesses, it's for individuals as well.

"The best thing about having these representatives here is that one-on-one assistance. You can ask lots of questions and get a feel for how long things may take and what else they may need," said SBA Public Affairs Specialist Demetria Clark.

There are a few Business Recovery Centers in the area but the ones that just opened up Wednesday are on East Gwinnett Street in Savannah and on Bay Street in Brunswick.

To be considered for assistance, survivors need to apply by the deadline. The filing deadline to return applications for physical property damage is Dec. 16.  The deadline to return economic injury applications is July 17, 2017.

Additional information on the disaster loan program may be obtained by calling SBA's Customer Service Center at 800.659.2955 (800.877.8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) or by sending an email to
