Business Affected by the Water Crisis?

The SBA has the Economic Injury Disaster program to provide loans to businesses to offset economic losses from reduced revenues resulting from a disaster or emergency. Since Lucas County as well as those areas of neighboring counties served by the Toledo water distribution system were declared a disaster area by the state and county, businesses may be eligible for this program.
In order for our community to apply for this relief, we need to provide proof that a number of businesses impacted by this disaster realized in excess of a 40% loss in revenues on the days they were impacted by this emergency as compared to the same days last year. The Toledo Chamber of Commerce's Small Business Development Center is conducted the required survey of businesses in order to compile the data to support a request. They have 120 days to submit this application but are trying to collect the requisite information over the next couple weeks to expedite the request. Once compiled, this information will be forwarded to the Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) for their review. If ODSA believes we have met or exceeded the threshold, OSDA will forward the information on to the Ohio Emergency Management Agency (OEMA) who will draft a request on behalf of the Governor for a SBA declaration from the federal government. Traditionally, the State will forward on the request if we can document at least five (5) businesses who have realized a 40% loss in revenues. After that it is at the discretion of the federal government.
What Can We In Government Do?
In order to assist this process we need to promote businesses to reach out to the Small Business Development Center at the Toledo Chamber of Commerce to participate in this process and document their losses. They can be reached by phone at (419) 243-8191 and email at . We can promote this through our public speaking engagements as well as through our internet, traditional and social media resources.
What Can Businesses Do?
Businesses whose revenues were impacted should fill out the attached survey and return it to the Small Business Development Center at the Toledo Chamber of Commerce by email at . Any questions regarding the survey or process should be referred to Bill Wersell who can be reached at (419) 243-8191.
