Did Winter Hurt Your JP Business? Snow Loan Program Could Help

If you own a business in JP and have losses because of the punishing series of storms we endured, there's help. A state program is offering loans of $5,000 to $10,000 to help local businesses "regain financial stability and recover from lost storm revenue." Brad Brown of Blue Frog Bakery touted the program at Wednesday's meeting of the JP Business & Professional Association. He said his Green Street business lost $12,000 in February from weather-related closings. The program, which could make as much as $1 million in loans available, would run through May, according to a press release.
