Bright & Early: It’s A Marathon Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Thanks to the folks in the US House, our state is the proud recipient of $200 million more in federal flood relief aid. Though the midstate has made huge strides toward recovery in the past few months, many homes and businesses are still facing more damages than they can afford. Many folks have also been frustrated by the lack of help from FEMA and the Small Business Administration, or by the amount of time it’s taking to get to them. The SBA has actually denied 62% of all flood claims by small businesses, meaning that almost two out of three businesses applying for help aren’t receiving it.
