Loans Offered to Montana’s Dahl Fire Victims

August 8, 2012

The head of the U.S. Small Business Administration says low-interest loans will be offered to qualifying Montana residents and business owners affected by the Dahl fire near Roundup.

The 34-square-mile blaze destroyed 73 homes and 150 outbuildings in late June and early July.

SBA administrator Karen Mills said Monday that loans of up to $200,000 are available to help homeowners replace or repair damaged real estate.

Homeowners and renters also are eligible for up to $40,000 to replace damaged or destroyed property. Businesses may borrow up to $2 million through the federal disaster program.

The program is available to residents and business owners in Musselshell, Yellowstone, Fergus, Golden Valley, Petroleum, Rosebud and Yellowstone counties. The filing deadline for property damage is Oct. 5.
