SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to Small Businesses in Florida Affected by…

first_imgWASHINGTON – Low-interest Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available to Florida small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small aquaculture businesses and private nonprofit organizations affected by Hurricane Dorian from Aug. 28 through Sept. 9, 2019.Acting SBA Administrator Christopher Pilkerton made the loans available in response to a letter from Gov. Ron DeSantis on Nov. 6, 2019, requesting a disaster declaration by the SBA. The declaration covers the following counties: Brevard, Broward, Clay, Collier, Duval, Flagler, Franklin, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lake, Manatee, Marion, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Nassau, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Polk, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Seminole, Volusia and the adjacent counties of Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Citrus, Desoto, Glades, Gulf, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Lee, Levy, Liberty, Okeechobee, Pasco, Putnam, Sarasota, Sumter and Wakulla in Florida; and Camden and Charlton counties in Georgia.“The SBA is strongly committed to providing the people of Florida with the most effective and customer-focused response possible to assist small businesses with federal Economic Injury Disaster Loans,” said Pilkerton. “Getting businesses and communities up and running after a disaster is our highest priority at SBA.”Eligible entities may qualify for loans up to $2 million. The SBA offers economic injury loans to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster. The loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that could have been paid had the disaster not occurred. Eligible small businesses include but are not limited to commercial fishermen, charter boats, hotels, restaurants, retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers.The rates on these working capital loans are 4 percent for small businesses and 2.75 percent for nonprofit organizations, with terms up to 30 years. Eligibility for the loan is based on the size and type of business and its financial resources.  The loans are not intended to replace lost sales or profits. Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any physical property damage.“The SBA can help affected small businesses and nonprofit organizations overcome their economic losses by offering working capital loans, but the help cannot start until they submit an SBA disaster loan application to us,” said SBA’s South Florida District Director Victoria Guerrero.Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure website at DisasterLoan.sba.gov.last_img read more

Departing Wenger to become world’s highest earning manager?

first_imgKampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Departing Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has received an enormous contract offer from China that would make him the highest paid manager in the world, according to reports.The Frenchman announced his decision to leave the Emirates at the end of the season after a 22-year reign last week, and there had been suggestions that he would move behind-thescenes into a director of football role at PSG.The unnamed Super League club has told Wenger that they will pay him more than the £24m-a-year deal Marcello Lippi currently takes home.Lippi, who is manager of the Chinese national team, is the highest-paid coach in the world, with the Premier League’s highest earner, Pep Guardiola, some way behind on £16m.Wenger earns £8m a year at Arsenal. He is believed to be weighing up the Chinese offer but would rather hold out and wait for an approach from a club in France or Spain.If class was a person, it be Arsene Wenger. pic.twitter.com/FXm1qHBdSN— Mike Sanz (@mikesanz19) May 1, 2018 Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
