Walz calling on Small Business Administration to help rebuild Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- After a federal disaster declaration was denied, Minnesota's governor is turning to the small business administration for help rebuilding Minneapolis.

Governor Tim Walz asked the SBA to declare a disaster.

That would free up low-interest loans to help property owners rebuild.

Nearly 1,500 businesses were damaged by vandalism, fire, or looting in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Damage estimates are more than $500-million.

Walz is also in the process of appealing the denied federal disaster declaration, which would bring in money to help rebuild.
