Bank Of America Projects Small Business Customers Will Need $2.5 Billion To Recover From Hurricane Sandy

Bank of America has mobilized approximately 1,000 of its small business relationship bankers to reach out to thousands of their customers impacted by Hurricane Sandy this week.

“We are making every effort possible to connect with our customers in the affected areas,” said David Darnell, Bank of America, co-chief operating officer. “These are our customers, we know them, and we are in a good position to help them assess their immediate needs.”

“Based on what we have already heard from customers,” continued Darnell, “we project they will need $2.5 billion in additional credit, and we are prepared to provide that on favorable terms to help them recover from the storm. If those needs increase, we will be there. We are committed to getting them through this difficult time.”

Impacted customers should contact their small business banker, client manager, Twitter @bofa_help, call 1 .855.729.1764 or stop by any branch for assistance.

Many of our customers will face financial hardship and will be in need of assistance as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Under the company's disaster relief program, Bank of America customers affected by severe storms and floods in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., may qualify to:
