The Small Business Administration is teaming up with the Small Business Development Center to help those affected by storms over this past September.
The two announced the opening of a business recovery center in Sioux Falls. The center will open Thursday, providing services for those impacted by storms, tornadoes, and flooding that occurred between September 9-26.
Homeowners and renters can also seek assistance at the center.
"Whenever people register with FEMA, they're probably going to get a referral to the U.S. Small Business Administration and with SBA," said Corey Williams, SBA public information officer. "A lot of times, homeowners are going to say, 'well, I don't have a business.' Well, in times of disaster, the U.S. Small Business Administration's Office of Disaster Assistance, not only helps out businesses of all sizes but homeowners, renters, and non-profits."
The business recovery center is located at 2329 N. Career Ave. in Sioux Falls.
No appointment is necessary and the services are provided free of charge.
