Governor Patrick requests financial relief for businesses impacted by bombings

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Financial relief may be on the way for small businesses and private non-profits impacted by the bombings.

Gov. Deval Patrick is asking the U.S. small business administration to issue an economic injury declaration for Suffolk County.

This move will allow long term and low interest SBA loans to be available to those affected.

In the days following the bombings, a 12-block area surrounding the explosions was closed for 10 days while authorities investigated the crime scene.
