SBA Hot Topic Tuesday — Are you Linc’d?

If not, you probably should be.

LINC is SBA’s online portal connecting loan applicants with lenders.

Applicants fill out basic information — how long in business, amount of loan, revenues — and it is forwarded to lenders that have a footprint in the applicant’s county.

If you are interested in the referral, the lender and prospective borrower’s contact information will be exchanged.

You may have multiple LINC referral contacts in different counties. You may sign up for as many counties or states as you wish.

SBA Lenders that are interested in joining LINC, may sign up electronically through the Partner Information Management System (PIMS) via the General Login System (GLS) at

Email your local District Office or for more detailed instructions.

The question is, will this work? I don’t know.

Tell me!

If you’ve approved a loan from a LINC referral, please email me at with the details!
