NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The U.S. Small Business Association is taking health precautions for the coronavirus and will begin reducing in-person recovery efforts on Monday.

Anyone impacted by the March 3 tornado should reach out online or by telephone for support. The SBA is suspending operations at the Business Recovery Center in Davidson County on Monday.

SBA will provide alternative ways to apply for a disaster loan, receive one-on-one application assistance and have your questions answered.

You can get help online here or by calling the SBA helpdesk at 1-800-659-2955 (1-800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. You can also email

 “SBA remains committed to providing Tennessee businesses and residents with the most effective response possible to the March 3 tornadoes. To further protect the health and safety of the community and SBA personnel, we are taking precautions while still delivering access to our disaster loan program,” said Kem Fleming, director of SBA’s Field Operations Center East in Atlanta, in a news release.
