SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Relief is coming to Miami Valley residents displaced by recent flooding.

The Small Business Administration is reaching out to those impacted by granting low interest, long term loans to help in relief efforts.

Lisa D’Allesandris, Director for Clark County Emergency Management, says these loans are available to a wide range of impacted individuals and businesses.

“We are encouraging all of the impacted residents not only in Clark County, but also Greene, Miami, Champaign, Montgomery and Madison as well,” D’Allesandris said.

Among the hardest hit, more than 80% of the Laynecrest Manor Apartments in Medway have been gutted due to the flooding more than two weeks ago.

More than 50 families who lived in Laynecrest Manor have been displaced since the flooding.

Public estimates for damages have totaled around $45,000.

The hours: Tuesday, June 10 through Thursday, June 19. Weekdays from 9:00am to 6:00pm. Saturday, June 14: 9am-1pm. Closed Sunday, June 15.

Individuals and businesses can also apply for the SBA loans online no later than August 2014 by going to The US Small Business Administration’s web site.
