Physical Damage Loans
Homeowners, renters, nonprofit organizations, and businesses of all sizes are eligible to apply for physical disaster assistance.
Home and personal property loans
If you live in a declared disaster area and have experienced damage to your home or personal property, you may be eligible for financial assistance from SBA — even if you do not own a business. As a homeowner, renter, or personal property owner, you may apply to SBA for a loan to help you recover from a disaster.
- Homeowners may apply for up to $200,000 to replace or repair their primary residence.
- Renters and homeowners may borrow up to $40,000 to replace or repair personal property — such as clothing, furniture, cars, and appliances — damaged or destroyed in a disaster.
- Secondary homes or vacation properties are not eligible for these loans. However, qualified rental properties may be eligible for assistance under SBA’s business physical disaster loan program.
- These loans cover disaster losses not fully covered by insurance or other sources. Proceeds from insurance coverage on home or property may be deducted from the eligible loan amount.
