As Minnesota continues to face record-high winter temperatures, Governor Tim Walz today announced that Minnesota has unlocked federal funding for small businesses impacted by this winter's historic drought conditions. Amid the warmest winter on record, federal Economic Injury Disaster Loans are available because of ongoing federal drought declarations affecting 81 Minnesota counties. Governor Walz urges small business owners to apply for assistance as soon as possible.

"From skiing and snowshoeing to winter festivals, snowy winters are part of our way of life in Minnesota. The low precipitation we've experienced this winter has had a real economic impact on small businesses that rely on snow and winter tourism to grow and survive," said Governor Walz. "I encourage all impacted business owners to apply for assistance as soon as possible."
