Two New Loan Initiatives Announced by SBA: Small Loan Advantage and Community Advantage 7(a) Loan
SBA is committed to expanding access to capital for small businesses and entrepreneurs in underserved communities so that we can help drive economic growth and job creation. In line with that, SBA is rolling out two new initiatives on February 15, 2011, aimed at increasing the number of loans in these communities.
SBA and U.S. Department of Commerce studies have shown the importance of lower dollar loans to small business formation and growth in underserved communities. With that in mind, and building on the agency's "Advantage" platform, both Small Loan Advantage and Community Advantage will offer a streamlined application process for SBA 7(a) loans up to $250,000.
