SBA Disaster Assistance

In the wake of this summer's historic flooding, the SBA would like to inform the City of South Burlington’s residents about the Physical Damage loans that they have made available through September 12th, as well as the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) made available through April 15, 2024

Residents of Caledonia, Chittenden, Lamoille, Orange, Rutland, Washington, Windham, and Windsor counties in Vermont are eligible for both loans; however small businesses and most private nonprofit organizations in the Vermont counties of Addison, Bennington, Franklin, Grand Isle and Orleans are only eligible to apply only for the EIDL’s.  (In addition, the EIDL’s apply to business and non-profit owners in the Massachusetts County of: Franklin; the New Hampshire counties of: Cheshire, Grafton, and Sullivan; and the New York counties of: Clinton, Essex, and Washington.) To assist small businesses and nonprofit organizations with walk-in assistance seven days a week—we’re operating (until further notice) the following SBA Business Recovery Centers (BRC’s): 

  • Lamoille County
    • 29 Sunset Drive in Morrisville
    • Hours:  Mon - Sun 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
  • Washington County
    • 751 Granger Road in Berlin
    • Hours: Mon - Sun 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
  • Windsor County
    • 126 Main Street in Ludlow
    • Hours: Mon - Sun 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Applications can also be made online at or by phone at 800-659-2955.  SBA customer-service representatives are also on-site at the four FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC’s) in Rutland, Windham and Washington counties to take applications and to offer assistance.
