The Carroll County Department of Economic Development is working with the Maryland Department of Economic Development to assess the county's business losses related to Hurricane Sandy, late last month.
Carroll County business owners who suffered any losses in the storm are asked to call the Carroll County Department of Economic Development to report the loss as soon as possible. The department is gathering contact information and type of loss, along with a cost estimate, and will forward the data to the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, as well as the Maryland Emergency Management Association (MEMA) and the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA).
Officials said the compilation of business losses and damage will be used to make a declaration for federal funding, including possible low-interest loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration and disaster assistance through FEMA.
