Connect more easily with community-focused lenders

Still looking for capital for your small business? Want to find a smaller community-focused lender to help? SBA relaunched and revamped its LenderMatch tool to help you do just that.  

Whether you're looking for a Paycheck Protection Program loan or another traditional SBA-backed loan, complete a short LenderMatch intake form and  interested community-focused lenders will contact you within two days. 

Find a lender

An added benefit: If you get an SBA-backed loan before September 27, the SBA will pay the principal, interest, and fees for six months.

 *Lender Match does not accept Economic Injury Disaster Loan applications. Those loans are made directly by the SBA, and the portal is currently open to all.
