Businesses that have been affected by superstorm Sandy
will have access to $1 million in state emergency loans, Governor Chafee
announced in a news release Friday.
The money will come from the R.I. Economic Development Corporation's Small Business Loan Fund. At a special meeting Friday, the loan fund's board approved the measure, which makes businesses directly affected by the storm eligible for loans from $10,000 to $25,000 at fixed interest rates from 2.5 to 4 percent.
"The state is committed to mobilizing resources and finding solutions to help both business and workers who have suffered a loss in this storm," Chafee was quoted in a news release as saying.
