At West Business Development Center we know the unique needs of our Mendocino and Lake County businesses. That’s why we are here to help support local businesses in recovering from any business disaster they may have encountered, and protect from future ones.

The SBA (U.S. Small Business Administration) has low interest rate loans available to businesses throughout our region called Economic Injury Disaster Loans. These special loans can cover up to $2 million for anyone’s business that was impacted economically by the fires or other disaster. Eligible contenders are small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture, and most private, nonprofit organizations of all sizes suffering substantial economic injury of any kind.

Is this you or your business?

  • Are you feeling the pinch now due to the fire and disasters this summer and fall?

  • Did you use credit cards to cover expenses and now don’t know how to get out from under the payments?

  • Did your sales plummet?

  • Do you dismiss the idea of getting a loan because of a natural disaster to make it through hard times? 

If so, please give us a call or email us at May 6th is the deadline to apply and we can help you with apply for this loan as well as offer our free experts to advise on any area of your business.

We are committed to the residents and businesses in the counties we serve and we look forward to helping you through any disaster recovery, and prepare for disaster with our emergency preparedness classes.
