Baltimore County Gets Some Aid for Sandy Damage

WASHINGTON (AP/WBOC)- The Federal Emergency Management Agency is offering money to help Baltimore County repair roads and public structures damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

Members of Maryland's congressional delegation announced the Public Disaster Assistance on Thursday. It reimburses local governments for up to 75 percentof the costs of eligible projects.

All other Maryland counties and the city of Baltimore were previously approved for this type of assistance.

Somerset County has also qualified for individual assistance to homeowners, renters and business owners.

On Friday, the Small Business Administration began accepting applications for loans of up to $200,000 from residents and businesses affected by the storm in Worcester, Somerset and Wicomico counties. The SBA said a Disaster Loan Outreach Center will be operating at the Ocean Pines Branch Library through Jan. 10. For more information, contact Thomas F. Kane, Worcester County Emergency Services emergency management planner, at (410) 632-3080.

The SBA loans are also available in neighboring Sussex County, Del., and Accomack County, Va.
