Jacksonville, IL…The State of Illinois and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are offering low-interest, long-term loans to residents in Jersey, Calhoun, Greene and Madison counties who were affected by flooding in 2019.

“The SBA has approved Illinois’ request for recovery loans for those who experienced flooding in Jersey County,” said Assistant Republican Leader C.D. Davidsmeyer (R-Jacksonville).

“Contiguous counties in my legislative district also qualify for flood-relief recovery loans.  If you live or have a business in Jersey, Calhoun, Greene or Madison counties and you experienced damages and losses from flooding then you may qualify for a low-interest loan.

Temporary Disaster Loan Outreach Centers (DLOC) have been setup to assist constituents with their loan application.

“The regional outreach center for our area is the QEM Fire House on the corner of Route 3 and Elsah Roads in Grafton.  The fire house will be open Wednesday, December 4 from 9am to 6pm and Thursday, December 5 from 9am to 4pm to help.

Davidsmeyer stated that constituents can contact his office if they’re unable to attend any of the outreach center’s open office hours.

“My office is available to help those who cannot make it to the regional outreach center this week.  Please contact my Jerseyville office at (618) 639-2071 or my Jacksonville office at (217) 243-6221 if you need help completing your loan forms.

Two deadlines exists for filings.  Monday, January 13, 2020 is the filing deadline for physical property damage.  Friday, August 14, 2020 is the filing deadline for economic injury applications.
