What is an SBA 504 loan?

SBA 504 loan program (also referred to as the CDC/504 Loan Program) was developed to encourage healthy businesses to expand and create jobs. It is a low down payment, long term, fixed rate loan program for the acquisition of real estate or equipment. With a lower down payment (typically 10%), a below market fixed rate, and a twenty year term, the business retains working capital to help fuel growth. The success of the program is highlighted in the following statistic: For every dollar of SBA program cost, $94 in federal, state and local tax revenues are returned.
