Funding Programs (SBA)

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) helps small businesses obtain funding through different types of loans. For small businesses that need funding, SBA works with lenders to provide loans to provide traditional loans. SBA does not lend money directly to small business owners, unless the business is located in a declared disaster area. Instead, the SBA sets guidelines for loans made by their partnering lenders, community development organizations, and micro-lending institutions. SBA reduces risk for lenders, which makes it easier for small businesses to get loans.
