The State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) was reinstated in March 2021 with $10 billion in funding as part of the American Rescue Plan. A considerable jump from $1.5 billion in 2010.

Small business lenders nationwide have been instructed to apply as Treasury approves state programs in “batches.”

This Coleman webinar will give an introduction to SSBCI 2.0 programs for financial institutions to utilize an alternative opportunity to 7(a) and 504 lending.

Leading the way with the most allocated funding is the California Small Business Loan Guarantee Program. An eye popping $20 million max loan amount has gained the attention of lending partners.

  • Purpose/Use of Funds
  • Financing Method
  • Qualifications

  • Non-profits eligible
  • OK to mandate banking relationship
  • Lines of credit up to $20MM

Testimonial: We’re not here to compete with SBA. We work with CDFI’s, Banks, Credit Unions. We want to be the second or third resource that do not meet SBA criteria.
