SBA Center in Fairfield County closing

Small Business Administration (SBA) announced today that its Disaster Loan Outreach/Business Recovery Center in Fairfield County will cease operations at the close of business Tuesday, Feb. 12. The SBA also reminds Hurricane Sandy survivors in Connecticut that the deadline to return applications for physical damage is Feb. 28.

The center is located at the Fairfield Senior Center, and is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
