Some much-needed help is on the way for local Texas businesses affected by this year's drought conditions.

The U.S. Small Business Administration announced 46 Texas counties including neighboring counties in New Mexico are eligible for low-interest disaster loans.

Andrews, Borden, Dawson, Gaines, Midland, Glasscock, and Howard counties all made the list.

Small businesses and most private non-profit organizations can qualify for the economic injury disaster loans of up to two million dollars.
