Only a limited amount of program funding is still available for businesses impacted by Hurricanes Laura/Delta, so businesses are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible to SCPDC. The application portal will close at the end of July 2024, however, at this stage of the process, funding for all applications submitted is not guaranteed. When submitting applications, applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the application document and provide all required documents and signatures as quickly as possible to allow for their timely review.

Applications are no longer being accepted for Hurricane Ida and the May 2021 Severe Storms due to all available funds being obligated.

If additional funds become available, the application portal may be reopened.”
