According to FEMA, disaster assistance may include grants to help pay for temporary housing, home repairs and replacement costs. Low-interest SBA disaster loans may be available to businesses of all sizes as well as certain private non-profit organizations. Officials said homeowners and renters are also eligible for SBA loans for losses not fully compensated by insurance or other compensation and do not duplicate benefits from other agencies or organizations.
