The federal Small Business Administration is expanding its effort to help Flint recover from its drinking water crisis.
Maria Contreras-Sweet is the SBA administrator. She met with business leaders in Flint on Friday. She told them the SBA plans to expand operations in Flint.
“$100,000 is going to help them staff up and then the other funds will help them expand their revolving fund,” says Contreras-Sweet.
Earlier this month, the agency approved Gov. Rick Snyder's request for low-interest disaster loans for businesses in the area.
