Gov. Snyder Requests Physical Disaster Declaration for Newaygo, Osceola Counties

Governor Snyder is asking the Small Business Association to offer help to several counties still dealing with spring weather damage.

He requested a physical disaster declaration for Newaygo and Osceola counties.

If approved, people in Clare, Kent, Lake, Mecosta, Missaukee, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Osceola, Oceana and Wexford counties would also be eligible for low interest loans.

Homeowners, renters, businesses and non-profits would all be able to apply for the help.

Many in our area are still trying to recover after major spring flooding.

If the declaration is approved, the SBA would set up temporary outreach centers in those areas to help people one-on-one.
