Our Mission

To make capital available to small businesses by working in partnership with banks to provide SBA 504 loans and other economic development loans. The SBAP has the solution to certain small business financing needs through programs that provide reasonable rates, lower down-payments, and longer repayment terms on loans for eligible small businesses. Up to 90 percent financing is available for fixed assets such as land, buildings, equipment and lease hold improvements. The programs offered encourage banks to make small business loans more readily available. If you have been unable to get long-term financing at reasonable rates, then the SBAP may have a loan for you.
