Mississippi’s Disaster Declaration

SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to Mississippi Small Businesses Economically Impacted by the Coronavirus

Governor Tate Reeves announced disaster assistance for Mississippi small businesses and their employees impacted by the current outbreak of COVID-19.

The U.S. Small Business Administration will offer low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to Mississippi small businesses suffering substantial
economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), according to SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza. SBA acted under its own authority, as provided
by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act that was recently signed by the President, to declare a disaster following
Governor Reeves’ request on March 18, 2020.

“Small businesses and their employees are struggling to stay afloat during this trying time, but we will get through this together. We are grateful that
SBA approved our request in such a swift, timely manner so we are better able to help Mississippi small businesses and their employees weather this
storm,” said Governor Tate Reeves.
