The SBA ODA is the primary source of recovery money for businesses of all sizes, private nonprofits, homeowners and renters who are uninsured/underinsured following a disaster such as the Carr Fire. Also, more than 80 percent of our loans are made to homeowners and renters, which not a lot of people realize, since our name is "SBA."
