The Small Business Administration is making some changes to its Office of Disaster Assistance as part of a broader effort to strengthen the agency’s disaster relief efforts. In addition to rebranding the office as the Office of Disaster Recovery and Resilience, the SBA plans additional coordination and alignment of its disaster recovery, planning and resilience activities to help business owners recover from natural disasters.
