CHICAGO (CBS) — Small businesses that lost money because of the deadly Highland Park Parade shooting on July Fourth are getting some help.
Governor JB Pritzker’s request for a disaster declaration from the US Small Business Administration was granted. Highland Park is in Lake County.
The disaster declaration is for Lake, Cook and McHenry counties in Illinois as well as for Kenosha County, Wisconsin, which shares a border with Lake County.
It means small businesses, agricultural co-ops, and non-profit organizations can get low-interest loans. Qualified companies may apply on the US Small Business Administration’s website.
