We are grateful to the first responders and volunteers working tirelessly to help their communities during this difficult time. The SBA EIDL program delivers critical relief to local organizations affected by disasters, and I’m pleased Mingo County small businesses and non-profits are now eligible for this crucial funding opportunity,” said Senator Manchin. “I encourage every eligible organization to apply for these critical funds, and I will continue working with national, state and local partners to support Mingo County’s recovery.”
