Dubois County qualified for the low-interest disaster loans and as a result, the contiguous counties of Crawford, Daviess, Martin, Orange, Perry, Pike, Spencer and Warrick are also eligible.

"These low-interest loans are designed to support the counties affected by severe weather this spring," Gov. Holcomb said. "It's my hope that area citizens and businesses recover fully and as quickly as possible."
