At the York Rotary Meeting of April 19, 2024 we had the pleasure of meeting Brian Beard, Public Affairs Specialist of the US Small Business Administration.  He told us about the availability of Disaster Loans that are currently available through the U.S. Small Business Administration due to the  Severe Storm and Flooding Event which occurred January 9-13th in several Maine Counties.  Mr. Beard provided us with literature and advice on how to apply and who may qualify for low-interest loans through this agency.
