BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Small Business Administration will begin a pilot program here Wednesday, the Whole Community Outreach in which SBA representatives will work to make face-to-face contact with business owners affected by the Dec. 10 tornadoes.

A small percentage of business owners here have applied for assistance through SBA. SBA wants to educate businesses on the low-interest loans available to business owners and identify any impediments to that federal assistance.

SBA representatives will be in Bowling Green through April 29 to help business owners submit loan applications, answer questions about their applications, and provide other assistance to help businesses recover from the storm damage.

SBA has set up an additional temporary office in the second floor conference room of the Kummer/Little Recreation Center. Hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday through April 29. Another SBA Business Recovery Center in Bowling Green remains in operation at the Western Kentucky University Center for Research and Development, 2413 Nashville Road.
