Baltimore Businesses OK'd for $165K in Riot Recovery Loans

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- The U.S. Small Business Administration has approved more than $165,000 in economic injury loans to help 38 Baltimore-area small businesses and nonprofits recover from civil unrest related to the death of Freddie Gray.
    
The numbers released Friday bring the total riot-related costs to at least $33.4 million. That includes a state estimate of $19.4 million for emergency protective measures and public-property damage, plus $12.9 million in paid insurance claims.
    
The low-interest SBA loans are to help small enterprises meet working capital needs. In July, the agency approved about $18,000 in loans to help repair physical damage to 24 properties.
    
The Baltimore Development Corp. says more than 400 businesses sustained damage or inventory losses.
    
Gray was a 25-year-old black man who died in April from injuries he suffered in police custody.
