To achieve

The severity and frequency of natural disasters has increased across the United States due to the impacts of extreme weather resulting from climate change. SBA disaster loans can help survivors take steps to better prepare for future disasters by funding mitigation measures that will help homeowners and businesses minimize disruption and recover more quickly. By September 30, 2023, the SBA will increase the number of loans that include mitigation measures by 20%.
