Governor Requests SBA Assistance for Tornado Impacted Areas

Governor Rauner has requested a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) physical disaster declaration for DeKalb County to help people and businesses in Fairdale and surrounding areas recover from the April 9 tornado.

The Governor’s request came after officials from the SBA, Illinois Emergency Management Agency(IEMA), and local officials surveyed damage and documented uninsured losses. That survey found 31 homes and seven businesses sustained major damages and had significant uninsured losses.

If approved, anyone affected by the April 9 tornadoes in DeKalb County and those counties contiguous to it would be eligible to apply for a low-interest, long-term loan through the SBA.
