WASHINGTON – In the aftermath of flooding, wildfires, earthquakes and man-made calamities, how does the U.S. Small Business Administration determine which businesses are eligible to apply for disaster loans? How are loan amounts decided? What role does insurance play in the outcome of disaster recovery?

Get answers to those and other questions during a free webinar on SBA disaster assistance funding hosted by the SBA and Agility Recovery Solutions on Tuesday, March 15 at 2 p.m. EDT.
