Small, non-farm businesses in the Montana counties of Carbon, Gallatin, Meagher, Park, Stillwater and Sweet Grass; and the neighboring Wyoming county of Park are now eligible to apply for low-interest federal disaster loans from the U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA). These loans offset economic losses because of reduced revenues caused by the hail, high winds, and severe storms that began August 1, 2013.
