Low-Interest Loans For Flooding Victims Approved
Low-interest loans of up to $200,000 are available to homeowners and renters to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, and SBA regulations also permit loans up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged personal property, including vehicles. Businesses and nonprofits can borrow up to $2 million to restore damaged or destroyed buildings, inventory, equipment and other physical losses. Economic Injury Disaster Loans are also available and may also be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact, whether or not the business sustained physical damage from the storm. The SBA offers long-term repayment options to keep payments affordable, with terms up to a maximum of 30 years. Terms are determined on a case-by-case basis, based upon each borrower’s ability to repay. The SBA will open Disaster Loan Outreach Centers (DLOCs) in Bucks County and Philadelphia to provide in-person assistance for those wishing to apply, and anyone from any county included in the disaster declaration can visit any DLOC location. However, businesses and individuals may immediately obtain information and loan applications by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 (1-800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing), or by emailing DisasterCustomerService@sba.gov.

New Falls Road Bridge
Replacement of New Falls Road Bridge over the Turnpike in Bristol Township. The detour(s), approved by PennDOT, have been in place since May 2020 since COVID-19-related virtual schooling allowed the bridge closure to happen sooner than originally planned. Two-way traffic will be restored across the new bridge on New Falls Road by the end of August 2021.
