Mono County Disaster Loan Program

A disaster designation was declared for the counties of Butte, Glenn, Nevada, Placer, Tehama, Tuolumne, Yolo and Yuba as a result of an agriculture hard freeze that occurred on April 11-12 2022. Since Mono County is an adjacent county to the disaster area, Mono County/Town of Mammoth Lakes businesses are now eligible for low interest disaster loans.

Two separate loans are open for applications through the USDA and SBA:

Because of a hard freeze on the western side of California last April all the ‘farmers and ranchers’ in the Town of Mammoth Lakes are eligible for low-interest disaster loans?
