What is an SBA 504 Loan?

The SBA 504 loan program is for businesses who want to finance bigger projects and take advantage of low down-payments and longer repayment terms as compared to conventional financing.  The SBA 504 loan program features higher maximum loan amounts than other SBA programs, and is best used to finance the purchase of major fixed assets.

The SBA 504 Loan is a partnership program between a business lender like State Bank of Southern Utah and a SBA Certified Development Company (CDC).  Typically, State Bank of Southern Utah will provide 50% of the project amount, the CDC will provide 40% and the borrower will provide 10% as a down payment.
