Small businesses in Mississippi: Submit for Economic Injury Declaration from SBA

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WXXV) — The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency is gathering information on the economic loss to small businesses throughout the state as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

MEMA is collecting this information so that Mississippi may request an “Economic Injury Declaration” from the Small Business Administration to aid in the economic loss suffered because of the coronavirus.

Any small business within your respective counties that may have suffered economic hardship due to COVID-19 should see the following two forms, one is a worksheet and the other is an instruction sheet.

After business owners complete these worksheets, they can submit them directly to the MEMA State Coordinating Officer Todd DeMuth, for inclusion into the SBA declaration request.

Submit your form to DeMuth at tdemuth@mema.ms.gov  by April 1, 2020.
