Types of SBA Loans

Depending on the needs of your small business, the Small Business Administration has several options to provide you with access to the financing you need to expand and grow your business. 

SBA 7(a) Loans

    The 7(a) loan program is the Small Business Administration's (SBA) primary program for providing financial assistance to small businesses.

The maximum loan amount is $5 million with a maximum SBA guarantee percentage of 85% for loans up to $150k and 75% for loans greater than $150k.

CDC/SBA 504 Loans

    The 504 Loan Program provides approved small businesses with long-term, fixed-rate financing used to acquire fixed assets for expansion or modernization. 504 loans are made available through Certified Development Companies (CDC's), SBA's community-based partners for providing 504 Loans.
