Time:3:00 pm

Instructor:  Kimberly A. Rayer

The U.S. Small Business Administration’s lending programs have seen significant growth in recent years. Over 68,000 loans were approved under the 7(a) and 504 loan programs during the 2017 fiscal year, providing over $30 billion to small businesses. Due to loan program growth and other changes, the SBA has issued an update to its standard operating procedures for SBA lending. SOP 50 10 5 (j) which becomes effective January 1, 2018, incorporates a number of SBA-initiated rule and policy changes and provides clarity on procedures and the lender oversight process. Banks who make SBA loans must understand the current rules and regulations. Staying on top of recent program changes ensures your bank can continue to offer this valuable loan product to your small business clients.
