Calhoun OES Director Kathy Wood says nonprofit groups in Calhoun can receive some federal help if they can prove damage from the severe storm and flood that swept through the region in May.

Roane, Gilmer, Wirt, Lewis and Upshur counties can also seek federal disaster loans to repair damage caused by the storms, flooding or landslides.

The Small Business Administration first offered low-interest loans to libraries, homeless shelters and other private nonprofits in Mingo and Wyoming counties.

Now, the agency has added six additional counties to the disaster declaration for private nonprofits.

The SBA says nonprofits can borrow up to $2 million to replace destroyed or damaged business assets such as machinery and inventory.

Mitigation funds are available to help pay for steps to minimize damage in the future.
