06 Sep EXIM Extends Assistance Measures to U.S. Exporters in Federal Disaster Areas Affected by Hurricane Harvey
“Washington, D.C. – Today the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) announced that the agency is extending provisions to assist U.S. exporters and financial institutions located in those areas of Texas and Louisiana that have been declared federal disaster areas by the Federal Emergency Management Agency due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
“The people of the Export-Import Bank extend our thoughts and prayers to all those affected by this storm and thank our fellow Americans who are dedicating their time to help neighbors in need,” said EXIM Acting Chairman and President Charles J. Hall. “As our customers cope with the impact of this devastating storm, EXIM stands ready to help these valued businesses get back on their feet. We hope that these measures especially benefit small businesses during the recovery period, and therefore we’re extending the time frames of working capital facilities and the deadlines of insurance policies and claims filings.””
