  • Find housing and rental assistance information
  • Get answers to questions or resolve problems
  • Get referrals to agencies that may offer other assistance
  • Learn about Small Business Administration (SBA) loan programs
  • Provide additional documentation that FEMA may require

Hernando County Emergency Management encourages those who are affected by Hurricane Idalia at least make application for the Individual Assistance (IA) and Small Business Administration programs.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) can offer low interest, long term loans for people, nonprofits, and businesses.  Even though the name SBA implies businesses, individual household member may still apply.  The deadline for individuals is October 30, 2023, and for businesses, May of 2024. They offer loans for the uninsured or the underinsured.  Apply now as to not miss any benefit you could be eligible for.
