PNPs that do not provide critical services of a governmental nature, such as food kitchens, homeless shelters, museums, libraries, community centers, schools, and colleges, may be eligible to apply for low-interest rate disaster loans.

PNP organizations may borrow up to $2 million, with an interest rate of 2.75%, to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory and other business assets.

Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application via SBA’s secure website at Disasterloan.sba.gov.
