Disaster Recovery

Has your business been impacted by a recent or natural disaster?


SBDC advisors are available to assist you with development of a Small Business Disaster Recovery Action Plan, including the reconstruction of your financial position if you do not have access to the financial documentation of your business. If you would like assistance on this matter, please complete the Online Disaster Assistance Application and we will assign an SBDC advisor to your case and contact you with next steps. Helping you recover from this disaster is top priority for us. If you do not receive a timely response, contact Donna Taylor at ​


The most important first steps--even before completing the SBDC application-- are to register with FEMA and the SBA:
Apply with FEMA 
  • If you are in the affected region, even if you don’t think you need any assistance now, you may need it later
  • If you have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers resources to help you recover.

Apply for SBA Disaster Loan Assistance (homeowners, renters, businesses of any size): 

  • If you are in a declared disaster area and have suffered any disaster related damage you may be eligible for federal disaster assistance.

Homeowners and Renters must register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to obtain a FEMA Registration ID Number by calling 1-800-621-3362. Homeowners and renters are encouraged to apply even if you are not sure you need or want a loan.
