The U.S. Small Business Administration announced Wednesday that a steady decrease of activity has led the agency to close its Disaster Loan Outreach Center in Montgomery and Mahoning counties.

The centers will cease operations Sept. 18 at the close of business.

In Montgomery County, the center is at Dayton Children’s Hospital, 1010 Valley St.

Businesses, homeowners and renters that sustained physical losses or economic injury due to severe storms, straight-line winds, tornadoes, flooding and landslides on May 27-29, 2019, are encouraged to visit the center and submit an SBA disaster loan application before it closes.

SBA representatives can provide information about disaster loans, answer questions and help in completing the SBA application.

To date, the SBA has approved more than $27.2 million in low-interest disaster loans for Ohioans.
