“This past year in a COVID world, First Commonwealth has successfully pivoted responsibilities to deliver unprecedented support to many small businesses.  To see this is in action was quite an experience; albeit admittedly one I do not want to go through again.  For your part, I say thank you for your continued help to the true heartbeat of America.” Michael J. Reed, CPA, ABV, CFF, CFE, CEIV, Managing Director, LCG Advisors

The Small Business Administration (SBA) recognizes that small business is critical to our economic recovery and strength, to building America's future, and to helping the United States compete in today's global marketplace.

Each state also offers help for small businesses through the Small Business Development Centers. For more information, go online to: in Ohio or in Pennsylvania.

SBA Lending Benefits:

Lower down payments

A smaller down payment allows your business to keep cash on hand to support day to day business operations.

Flexible pre-payment

SBA lending usually includes flexible pre-payment terms, allowing you the option to accelerate payments with no penalty.

Longer terms

SBA loans are long-term loans, usually 10-25 years with no balloon payments. This means lower monthly payments so your business has more cash on hand to allocate toward sales and growth.
