After Push from Maloney, All Four Counties in NY-18 Now Qualify for Small Business Administration Disaster Assistance

Newburgh, NY – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced the Small Business Administration (SBA) has approved Disaster Assistance Loans for small businesses in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess and Orange counties. Rep. Maloney pushed the SBA to approve all four counties, as small businesses have faced closures due to COVID-19, or coronavirus, containment.

“In the Hudson Valley and across New York, small businesses are struggling to stay in business because of the coronavirus. I’m encouraged that all four counties in New York’s 18th Congressional District can now utilize Small Business Administration disaster loans, and encourage every small business owner in the Hudson Valley to apply,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.

Earlier this week, Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties were declared eligible as contiguous counties through the Connecticut declaration. Yesterday morning, Rep. Maloney called on the SBA to immediately open disaster loan eligibility for small businesses in Orange County and New York State. Yesterday afternoon, Orange county was included in the New Jersey declaration.
