o EDC has about 40,000 square feet of space at the Terminal that is now available for this use.

o Loans up to $2 million are also available for business property losses not fully covered by insurance – and for businesses that have had cash flow problems caused by the storm and need funds to get back on their feet.

§ That applies to small businesses, agricultural co-ops, and most nonprofits, regardless of size.



· Anyone affected by Sandy – homeowners, renters, and businesses – can apply for federal disaster assistance.
