Financing Your Expanding Small Business

To be a successful small business, it takes tremendous passion and incredible work ethic. Nothing comes easy. And nothing is given to you.  504 GROW Loans reward the efforts of small business owners by providing access to more affordable funding that can be applied to a wide range of commercial growth needs.

  • Below market, fixed interest rates (SBA 504 portion)
  • Long amortization terms (up to 20 years)
  • Loans are assumable by qualified, acquiring businesses

  • First mortgage rate set by participating lender
  • $5.5MM for manufactures and loans that qualify under energy efficiency criteria (all others up to $5.0MM for the SBA 504 portion)

If your business needs major fixed assets such as equipment or real estate, you should consider a 504 GROW Loan. Eligible use of 504 Loan proceeds includes:

  • Buy land and construct new building
  • Buy land with an existing building
