Business Grants For Tennessee Entrepreneurs?

Tennessee residents and business owners who have been affected by the recent devastating floods are eligible to receive financial assistance.

President Obama has officially declared a major disaster for the region, and has allocated federal funding to help individuals in the following counties: Cheatham, Davidson, Hickman and Williamson.

The funding will help with rental assistance, hotel bills, repair grants, low-interest loans, and other initiatives that can help individuals and business owners recover.

FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) is managing and disbursing the funds. So, the first step is to register, either by calling (800) 621-FEMA or by visiting www.DisasterAssistance.gov. The toll-free number will operate from 7am to 10pm everyday including Sunday.

The second step is hope that funding is not limited. There's never enough money to help everyone in a situation like this, but usually those who apply first have an advantage.
