At Newtek, The Small Business Authority, we just announced several special programs to help small businesses devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Newtek Chairman and CEO Barry Sloane says, “We are here to help small businesses and even moreso, any individuals affected by Hurricane Sandy’s devastation. Newtek, “The Small Business Authority” helps independent business owners in good times and bad, both our clients as well as others. We are a business located in both Manhattan and Long Island and clearly understand the problems these local businesses face. We are here every day, around-the-clock to help with all major causes of concern for small businesses.”

Mr. Sloane offers, “All it takes is a phone call to the 1-855-2-THESBA phone line for help with:

* SBA Disaster Loan Funding

Additionally, it is important to know that The United States has declared several states (and many counties within them) Federal disaster areas. These include areas within Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Newtek understands both individuals as well as small business leaders have myriad assistance questions. Answers may be found at FEMA, U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Website. Assistance can include grants for temporary housing, home repairs, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the Hurricane Sandy disaster. Moreover, this site also provides helpful programs for medical and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.
