SBA oil spill centers close next week

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The oil spill recovery centers set up by the Small Business Administration will close Thursday, October 14 because few people are still seeking help.

"I encourage anyone who has not completed their disaster loan application to visit the Centers before they close," said Frank Skaggs, director of SBA's Field Operations Center East in Atlanta.

After the centers close, small business owners will still be able to contact SBA's Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 for information on low-interest disaster loans.

The centers will be closed Monday, October 11 in observance of Columbus Day, but will reopen on Tuesday. They'll close for good at the end of the business day Thursday. The centers' hours are weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the following locations: 

SBA Gulfport Branch Office
Hancock Bank Plaza, Suite 1032510
14th Street
Gulfport, MS 39501

Jackson County Fairgrounds
Conference Room A3
2902 Shortcut Road
Pascagoula, MS 39567
