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 [email protected](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.

Right-wing fraudsters attorney says they want Alan Dershowitz to testify at robocall trial

first_imgIn this clip below, Burkman’s attorney Scott Grabel claims he has “spoken” to Alan Dershowitz by “email” and is not sure whether or not he will be able to be “retained,” but is hoping to have a place for him to speak on, once again, “constitutional law.” This is the same Alan Dershowitz whose shining catastrophic moment, the one that will likely be remembered in law history for centuries to come, was the singularly most convoluted, intellectually dishonest, and vapid attempt at arguing that Donald Trump couldn’t be impeached due to an abuse of power, while then arguing he didn’t say he said that, but that if he had said it it would be true, but it isn’t, so don’t say he said that. Daily Dot’s Zachary Petrizzo reported that Michigan Attorney General lawyer Richard Cunningham strongly opposed the motion to have a constitutional witness, before the bizarre Dershowitz revelation, because “An attorney’s role is to argue the law, it is not to testify as to what the law is.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Burkman’s lawyer is consulting with famously unscrupulous, self-aggrandizing, there is no law unless I say it’s a law, Alan Dershowitz. This is about a series of robocalls, received in various states, targeting predominantly Black and brown communities across the country, that attempted to scare potential voters away from early voting, by lying about how early voter rolls would be used to imprison people based on outstanding debts or warrants.Law & Crime reports that Dershowitz has told them that he is “not involved in that case,” referring to Burkman’s robocall fraud. Dershowitz also says that he is not involved at all with Trump election lawsuits. Burkman’s attorney, Grabel told Law & Order that “If Mr. Dershowitz isn’t working on ‘election issues’ I stand corrected.”Real scumbag shit. Makes sense that Dershowitz is involved—even tangentially. George Bernard Shaw once wrote that one should “Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.” In this case, everyone involved might like it. No bad press and all of that. Only the best people.- Advertisement –last_img read more

NegOcc bat for more quarantine facilities

first_img“If there is any LGU that can do this, please let the province know so we can coordinate,” Lacson said. Some 1,600 Negrenses stranded across the Philippines due to travel restrictions brought by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak have registered in the Capitol’s online database. The provincial government manages two patient care centers for returning Negrenses required to undergo a 14-day mandatory quarantine before getting a clearance to go home to their respective towns and cities. “You have to provide food. You have to provide health workers, and of course, you have to provide security in coordination with the Philippine National Police,” Lacson said. He however noted that setting up a quarantine facility is not just a matter of having available rooms. These are the Provincial Healing Center at the “Yolanda” housing site in EB Magalona that can accommodate some 200 individuals, and the Mambukal Resort in Murcia town that can accept 100 persons. Of the 27 OFWs, three have tested positive for Covid-19 and have been isolated in the Provincial Healing Center. (PNA) BACOLOD City – Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson has encouraged local government units (LGUs) in Negros Occidental build more quarantine facilities to accommodate returning Negrenses. “They can accept up to 30 for now, but they’re still preparing for more. I’d like to thank Mayor Bading Escalante for his willingness to open up his city in accepting Negrenses for quarantine,” Lacson said. He said he has learned that Silay City also has homes that can be used but he has yet to receive a formal offer from the city government that these can be used as a quarantine facility. He said Cadiz City, headed by Mayor Salvador Escalante Jr., has set up a quarantine area in a “Yolanda” housing site, which can accommodate an initial 30 people. All Negrenses who came home since April have been quarantined in either of the two facilities, but a group of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who returned to Negros Occidental on April 28 has been moved to the Go Hotel in Bacolod after the province signed a contract with the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration for their transfer. “The more quarantine facilities we have, the faster we can bring in Negrenses,” said Lacson.last_img read more
