The Small Business Administration announced that low-interest, long-term disaster loans are now available to California businesses and residents affected by wildfires, flooding, mudflows, and debris flows. This includes Economic Injury Disaster loans for businesses that may or may not have sustained any damage, but have experienced a downturn in business because of the disaster (i.e. if your business was closed, lost orders due to canceled events, reduced sales, layoff of employees, inventory losses such as expired food for a restaurant, etc).

Note: SBA recommends that businesses first file their insurance claims and register with FEMA online, but don’t wait for your insurance and FEMA to settle before applying for SBA assistance! SBA may be able to get your money to you sooner than your insurance, and we will work with FEMA and your insurance to make certain that no double-payments occur.
