The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Management has received word from the Michigan State Police and Homeland Security Division that Governor Snyder’s request for a Disaster Declaration was granted by the U.S. Small Business Administration (USBA).
This declaration affected eight counties in Michigan including Ottawa County. As a result, low-interest disaster loans for uninsured losses are available to homeowners, renters, businesses and nonprofit organizations who incurred flood damage.
Documents providing information and direction for those that are interested in applying for these loans are available on at miOttawa.org.
The USBA will also be opening a Disaster Loan Outreach Center at the Kent County Sheriff Department in Grand Rapids, where service representatives will be available to assist individuals in completing their loan applications.
