WI Businesses Eligible for Help After Winter Losses

WI Businesses Eligible for Help After Winter Losses

Gov. Tony Evers and U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin) announced that many Wisconsin businesses may be eligible for a federal disaster loan program if they have suffered losses due to this year’s unusually mild winter, which lacked Wisconsin’s typical snowfall in many areas of the state.

The governor is announcing three additional counties will now be eligible: Florence, Marinette, and Buffalo counties. The governor and Sen. Baldwin worked to secure additional guidance from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), which has confirmed these counties will now be eligible for the federal disaster loan program, as well.

The SBA has confirmed that they will consider business loss from recent low snowfalls over the winter months to be related to the drought and eligible for assistance. The lack of snow has impacted travel and recreation businesses that depend on it for activities such as downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.
