SAN DIEGO–The City of San Diego is asking residents to participate in a survey to assess damage done by the recent storm that hit the area. The City is teaming up with the County of San Diego to assess damage to see if renters and homeowners may have access to federal emergency funding through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) since they are in need to start recovering from residential water damage.
If so, the information collected will help determine if the region is eligible to receive emergency SBA funding. Renters and homeowners may borrow up to $40,000 to repair or replace clothing, furniture, cars, or appliances damaged or destroyed in the storms. Homeowners may apply for up to $200,000 to repair or replace their primary residence to its pre-disaster condition.
Visit www.sdcountyrecovery.com/damages-resulting-from-disaster to fill out an initial damage survey. The City will work with the County to determine if the region meets minimum damage estimates for federal support. If the region qualifies, you will be notified and given the opportunity to submit a formal application for SBA funding.
