Topeka, Kansas (WIBW) — Recovery loans have opened for Kansans rebuilding from the wildfires rampant in December due to a heavy gust of wind.
Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers says he understands ranchers and farmers are facing hardship after the Dec. 15 fires in the wake of a windstorm in the state began a long road to recovery.
“We are here to provide support to a Kansans that will need long-term assistance to rebuild and recover,” Treasurer Rogers said. “This is not a short-term project, it will be a long-term effort to restore the livelihoods of these people, and it will help my office in every way possible.”
Rogers listed information about the Economic Recovery Loan Program as a refund resource for farmers and ranchers on the Kansas Department of Agriculture website. He said the program is one of the linked deposit loan programs that provides low cost loans and is operated through pooled funds investment bonds, Treasurer’s office and local financial institutions.
Rogers said the loans available through the program are specifically designed to provide relief to small businesses and struggling agricultural operations. He said that those interested should speak with their preferred financial institution about obtaining loans.
