OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) says an important deadline is coming up for small businesses in Thurston County that are seeking disaster relief.

“These low-interest federal disaster loans are available in Burt, Cuming, Dakota, Dixon, Thurston and Wayne in Nebraska; and neighboring Monona and Woodbury counties in Iowa.”
