Veterans to Get More Small Business Loans

The SBA already partners with Syracuse University through its the Entrepreneurship Boot Camp for Veterans with Disabilities program. Now in its fourth year, the program also provides training on how disabled vets can start and grow a small business.

The initiative also complements SBA's new partnership with the National Association of Development Companies (NADCO) VetLoan Advantage, a strategic initiative that offers small business financing discounts and rebates on commercial real estate and working capital SBA loans and training to veterans who own businesses or are interested in small business ownership.

NADCO is the national trade association for certified development companies, which are non-profit companies that have been certified by the SBA to provide financing for small businesses under the SBA's 504 loan program - the agency's most-often used long-term financing program. Last year, the industry provided roughly $6 billion in financing to 10,000 small businesses, it said.

Under the VetLoan Advantage, veterans are eligible to take advantage of a cash rebate up to $3,000 for every SBA 504 loan funded to help offset their loan expenses, including appraisal and environmental reports.
