4) Home and Property Disaster Loans - This type of loan is geared towards the provision of loaned funds to homeowners whose homes have been damaged during natural disasters. This type of loan can provide loan funds amounting to $200,000 depending on the extent of the damages incurred by the property.
5) Military Reservist Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program - The purpose of this loan is to loan funds to eligible small businesses in an effort to help them meet their ordinary and necessary operating expenses that it was supposed to meet, but failed to do so in the process, for the reason that one or some of its employees have been called to active duty in their role as a military reservist.
