CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – The U.S. Small Business Administration is making disaster loans available to small businesses, small agriculture cooperatives and most private non-profits in three New Hampshire counties hit by floods in June.

The loans are available in Carroll, Rockingham and Strafford counties because they are contiguous to one or more Maine counties named in a disaster declaration. The New Hampshire counties border York, Cumberland and Oxford counties in Maine.

Businesses and non-profits that suffered a direct financial loss as a result of excessive rain and flooding from June 19-30 may qualify for low-interest loans of up to $2 million.
