More than 1,000 homes and businesses were damaged by the June flood that swamped Duluth and other parts of northeastern Minnesota. But fewer than 300 applications for help have come in to the Small Business Administration. Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon came to Duluth to kick off the state’s new “Flood Homes with Hope” campaign.
As MPR notes, even a rejection from the SBA is important because it could start the process of qualifying for state aid.
The SBA home page for Minnesota’s June floods includes a link to an application for aid.
At the state level, Minnesota Recovers maintains a page with links to various types of state aid applications.
