Businesses that have suffered damage in last week’s tropical storm should call the Vermont Agency of Commerce disaster hotline at 802-828-3211 to report the damage.
Businesses could become eligible for disaster assistance from the Small Business Administration for storm damage, including loss of revenue due to the storm. Businesses should start to clean up now, making sure to take plenty of pictures and account for loss of revenue in order to eventually apply for assistance.
The first step in the recovery process is reporting damage to the Agency of Commerce at 802-828-3211.
Individual home owners should report their damage to 211.
Vermont Emergency Management will operate its Emergency Operations Center at the FEMA offices in Burlington at least until the end of this week.
