CoVantage offers special loans for flood victims

Metro Wire Staff

CoVantage Credit Union has announced that it will provide special flood assistance loans to those impacted by flood damage.

In a press release sent out Wednesday morning, the company announced an unsecured loan plan, for up to $25,000, to help with expenses related to property floodings, such as repairs, restoration services, or replacement of personal belongings, for eligible borrowers. The special flood assistance loan rate is 4.99 percent APR and borrowers have up to four years to pay it back.

“Part of the CoVantage mission is to work with members experiencing financial challenge,” said Stacy Bouche, chief mortgage lending officer. “When natural disasters occur that impact our members’ financial well-being, we want to help. We believe this flood assistance loan is a way CoVantage can provide peace of mind during a very stressful time.”

For those needing to borrow more than $25,000, Bouche said the credit union is offering no closing costs on a home equity line of credit at current rates.

“The last thing someone needs when dealing with flood damage is worrying about where they will get the money to repair their home and replace possessions,” she said.
