However, applicants who receive SBA loan applications must submit them to SBA either through the U.S. Mail, online at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/(link is external)., or to their local Disaster Recovery Center to be eligible for assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement, and moving and storage expenses.SBA disaster loan information and application forms may be obtained by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955 (800-877-8339 for people with speech or hearing disabilities) Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET; Saturday and Sunday from9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET or by sending an e-mail to disastercustomerservice@sba.gov(link sends e-mail).

It covers the most current information from FEMA regarding the ongoing disaster recovery efforts for all who have been affected by Tropical Storm Irene in Vermont. FEMA encourages interested parties to forward this free publication to any others you feel may be interested in our outreach initiative or who may need the disaster related information. This week’s E-Newsletter features: ·         Reiteration of the Registration Deadline for Disaster Assistance  (NOVEMBER 15th)·         Recovery Update As Of: Close of Business November 2, 2011·         FEMA Disaster Assistance Information for Vermonters with Insurance·         Updated Disaster Assistance Program Overview, Including the FEMA Disaster Fraud Hotline·         Business Recovery and Small Business  Development Center LocationsWith fewer than one in five eligible Vermonters returning their U.S. Small Business Administration disaster loan applications, FEMA and SBA have teamed with Vermont NeighborWorks Organizations to offer more help with the paperwork. The deadline to return the applications is November 15.To date, SBA has mailed out 4,174 applications to Vermont homeowners and renters who have already received grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help them recover from Tropical Storm Irene. Only 782 have been returned, a rate of just under 19 percent.‘If you don’t complete the loan application, then FEMA can’t even consider you for several types of grants’money that is not a loan and does not have to be repaid,’ said FEMA Federal Coordinating Officer James N. Russo. ‘You are never required to take a loan. If you want to do the best you can to ensure you receive all available assistance from FEMA, you must return that SBA application. That’s why we’re now offering help at 11 locations around Vermont.’Anyone whom SBA determines to be qualified will be offered a low-interest, disaster recovery loan. Payments can be as low as $50 a month. A loan may be a sensible option for bringing an individual or family back to its pre-disaster situation, since FEMA grants do not usually cover the full cost. But no one is ever required to accept a loan.To talk with an SBA specialist by phone, call 800-659-2955 or 800-877-8339 for people with speech or hearing disabilities.

first_imgBut she appeared out of sorts on court, calling on a doctor in the second set.Gauff had been bidding to become the youngest Wimbledon quarter-finalist since fellow 15-year-old American Jennifer Capriati in 1991.“I wasn’t feeling very well but I still played my best. I’m not sure what it was but I still had fun even though I was losing,” she said.“I learned a lot about how to play in front of a big crowd and how to play under pressure. I am really grateful for the experience.”Gauff’s meeting with 2014 Wimbledon semi-finalist Halep was the match everyone wanted to watch on Manic Monday, with Vogue editor Anna Wintour forced to watch from a staircase because of the bumper crowd.But the magnitude of the occasion appeared to get to Gauff, who showed signs of early nerves by having her serve broken in the very first game.She broke back immediately, and later in the first set almost went another break up when Halep double-faulted twice in succession, but scuppered two break points as Halep held serve.Yet unlike her cool and calm approach in previous matches, Gauff looked despondent after every game she lost, throwing her racquet to the ground and clapping her hands together in frustration as Halep broke her serve to go 3-2 up.Gauff was broken once more as Halep took the set before the second set started in exactly the same fashion, Halep breaking her young opponent’s serve at the first chance.Yet again Gauff immediately broke back, but she lost on serve again to gift her opponent a 4-2 lead, and Halep went on to hold match point on a break but Gauff rallied back.Gauff showed not a flicker of emotion as Halep eventually served out the set, not even stopping to greet the autograph hunters as she walked to the changing rooms.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Coco Gauff’s remarkable fairytale run at Wimbledon came to an end with a straight-set defeat by former world number one Simona Halep.Seventh seed Halep, 27, beat the 15-year-old American qualifier 6-3 6-3 to advance to the quarter-finals, where she will play China’s Zhang Shuai.Gauff had beaten Venus Williams, Magdalena Rybarikova and Polona Hercog on her way to the last 16.last_img read more
