Small Business Administration Loans Available to Water and Wastewater Utilities

The U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) Office of Disaster Assistance provides low-interest, long-term loans following a disaster. These loans are available to private for-profit and private non-profit drinking water and wastewater utilities.  The loans help utilities return infrastructure to its pre-disaster operability. Loans may be for up to 30 years.

  • SBA Business Physical Disaster Loans
  • SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans
    • These loans aid small businesses and most private non-profits that have suffered substantial economic injury (regardless of physical damage) and are in a state, presidential, and U.S. Department of Agriculture declared disaster area. The Economic Injury Disaster Loan is a working capital loan.  It cannot be used to repair, replace, or purchase physical assets. For more information, visit SBA's Disaster Assistance website.
