From the Introduction: "A bill to authorize the SBA to declare a disaster in rural areas where significant damage has been incurred to provide disaster assistance was introduced by Senators Jim Risch, Jeanne Shaheen, Maggie Hassan, John Kennedy, and Mike Braun on May 13, 2021. This bill allows the Administrator to declare a disaster in a rural area for which a major disaster was declared by the President under section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, and for which individual assistance was not authorized, if the Governor of the State or the Chief Executive of the Indian tribal government in which the rural area is located requests such a declaration; and any home, small business concern, private nonprofit organization, or small agricultural cooperative has incurred significant damage in the rural area."
