SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Gov. Bruce Rauner said that federal loan assistance is being made available for residents in five Illinois counties affected by flooding in July.
Rauner’s office said Tuesday that the U.S. Small Business Administration has approved the state’s request for help. That means people and businesses in Carroll, Jo Daviess, Ogle, Stephenson and Winnebago counties are eligible to apply for low-interest, long-term loans.
Rauner said the assistance will help those affected “begin the next phase of their recovery from this disaster.”
