FEMA, SBA moving disaster recovery center to Aransas Pass

The Small Business Administration and FEMA center in Ingleside announced Friday that they will move to a new location in Aransas Pass starting Saturday.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - The Small Business Administration and FEMA center in Ingleside announced Friday that they will move to a new location in Aransas Pass starting Saturday.

The center allows individuals to sit down with workers from both organizations and apply for a disaster recovery loan.

Signs of Hurricane Harvey remain throughout the Coastal Bend, and residents still are in need of help.

"So what the Small Business Administration does is we help supplement, we basically cover uninsured losses," SBA Public Information Officer Bobby Petty said.

On Saturday, residents can find the new FEMA and SBA location at 109 West Wilson Avenue.

"Now what we're doing here at the disaster recovery center is processing that paperwork for FEMA as well as the Small Business Administration," Petty said.

The SBA said the new center in Aransas Pass aims to help more people that need loans. Homeowners can receive up to $200,000; renters can receive up to $40,000; up to $2 million can be received for economic injury.

"On average it takes about four weeks or so, sometimes longer, for homeowners, and a little bit longer for business owners," Petty said.

The disaster recovery center's hours are as follows:
Monday-Saturday: 9 a.m-6 p.m.
Sunday: Noon-5 p.m.
