On Friday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the extension of the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program to July 12, 2019.
The $25 million program will help agricultural producers in designated disaster areas prepare for the upcoming growing seasons, as part of ongoing recovery efforts from Hurricane Michael.
“We are laser-focused on getting real relief and assistance to Floridians in our Northwest Florida communities,” said DeSantis. “Extending the Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program deadline will help more Florida farmers get back on their feet sooner.”
Designated disaster areas include Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Okaloosa, Wakulla, Walton and Washington counties.
