504 Loan Information
Small businesses are recognized as innovators and employment generators. Their success and growth is critical to the health of America’s economy. However, small businesses sometimes encounter difficulties securing long-term financing at affordable interest rates. Recognizing an opportunity to provide support, the Small Business Administration (SBA) offers businesses, and lending institutions that partner with them, an additional financing option with the SBA 504 Loan Program. It is the job of the Economic Development Foundation (EDF) to encourage the use of 504 lending throughout Michigan.
