SOUTH MISSISSIPPI — The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding small businesses in Mississippi affected by the Deepwater BP Oil Spill that only two weeks remain to apply for working capital loans.
“Businesses that suffered economic losses as a result of the oil spill and want to apply for low-interest loans from the SBA are urged to do so before the Feb. 14 deadline,” said Frank Skaggs, director of SBA Field Operations Center East.

The loans are available to small businesses and most private non-profit organizations in the following counties: Forrest, George, Greene, Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Lamar, Marion, Pearl River, Perry and Stone.
