All Montana and Wyoming businesses eligible for federal disaster loans

BILLINGS — Businesses and nonprofits in all of Montana and Wyoming are eligible for up to $2 million in disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, according to press releases from U.S. Sens. Jon Tester and Steve Daines of Montana and Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon.

The loans are designed to help businesses stay afloat if they have suffered economic injury as a result of mandated closures related to COVID-19.

Initially, only some counties in both states were eligible because they had declared a state of emergency. This latest order added all remaining counties in both states.
