Months after an explosion leveled two apartment buildings in East Harlem, nearby business owners can take out special loans to help with the recovery effort.

The state partnered with nonprofits and community organizations to make $425,000 available.

The money is for people who owned small businesses between 115th and 118th streets between Madison and Lexington avenues, which is the area surrounding the site where a gas leak led to an explosion and a deadly building collapse in March.

Business owners can take out loans of up to $20,000 each.
