RENO, Nev. (AP) - Reno residents victimized by last month's big wildfire have another week to get information and make applications for federal disaster loans at a special office set up in town.
The U.S. Small Business Administration says it will close the temporary Disaster Loan Outreach Center at 1 p.m. next Friday.
In the meantime, SBA Director Edward Cadena says customer service reps are available form 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the office on Sinclair street to help residents and business owners affected by the Caughlin fire that destroyed 30 homes and damaged dozens more.
Businesses and non-profit groups can borrow up to $2 million. Homeowners can get up to $200,000 to repair real estate and homeowners and renters are eligible for up to $40,000 to repair or
replace personal property.
