OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today announced that eligible Tulsa County homeowners and business owners may now receive disaster assistance from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as a result of the tornadoes and other severe weather that began Aug. 5.

The designation provides SBA low-interest disaster loans for eligible homeowners and business owners in Tulsa County to replace any property damaged by the storm that was not covered by insurance or other assistance programs. The loan program is also available to assist businesses that sustained economic injury due to the storm.

Under SBA rules, the contiguous counties of Creek, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Wagoner and Washington are also eligible for assistance.

Damage assessments found more than 140 homes and businesses were affected by the storms in Tulsa County, including 26 businesses with major damage. Multiple injuries were attributed to the storm.
