Offers loan guarantee programs to help build and grow small businesses. Contact the Boise office at (208) 334-9004, extension 333; the Spokane office at (509) 353-2809, or visit the Funding Programs section of the SBA’s website.

The SBA guarantees loans made by local banks to qualified businesses; it does not issue loans. For information, contact your banker. Both bank and SBA requirements must be met. Applicants need a well researched and written business plan, proof of positive cash flow and collateral before approaching a lender.
