As an attorney, I have had a number of parents ask me how to obtain a FEMA Loan for Hurricane Sandy Relief. I hope this helps someone, as the loans are large and at only 1% interest rates.
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you may need further assistance. Feel free to comment of you want me to post more steps.
This is the proper link to get the certificate of existence for your business. The fee is $25 plus $25 to expedite. Don't waste your time calling. You will be on hold for an hour.
This will help others requesting a FEMA federal loan. It needs to be signed & faxed in. This certificate with NYS proves that you have a real business. I know, it's annoying, but FEMA needs this to approve your loan.
this is the main website where I got the PDF, BTW
Check this box
"CERTIFICATE UNDER SEAL"
and pay the $50 fee total, don't fight it... just pay... I am aware this is a waste of money for 1 piece of paper, but you need it to get the 1% loan for like 100K
