People and businesses in Schuylkill County adversely affected by Tropical Storm Isaias back in August 2020 have more time to apply for low-interest recovery loans.

The US Small Business Administration approved Gov. Tom Wolf’s request that the deadline be extended until April 19. That’s an extra month for residents and business owners to get their hands on some loan cash to help repair any potential damages caused by the storm.

TS Isaias EIDL Loan Deadline Extended for Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania Residents and Businesses

TS Isaias largely spared Schuylkill County from any serious flooding damage. The heavy rainstorm was feared to bring rivers and streams above flood stage but those worries never got much beyond that.

Still, Schuylkill County is one of several in Pennsylvania where residents – both homeowners and renters – are invited to apply for low-interest loans of up to $200,000 in loans to cover property damage losses, and another $40,000 for personal property damage, like to vehicles. Businesses can borrow up to $2 million.

In addition to Schuylkill County, residents and businesses in these Pennsylvania counties can get these SBA EIDL loans for TS Isaias losses:

  • Bucks
  • Chester
  • Delaware
  • Lancaster
  • Lebanon
  • Lehigh
  • Montgomery

Affected people or businesses can get help applying for one of these Isaias EIDL loans through the SBA using the administration’s Virtual Disaster Loan Outreach Center. The VDLOC is open from 8 a.m.-8 p.m., 7 days a week. You can call 800-659-2955 or email for more information.
