SBA Veteran Pledge Initiative

With the support of SBA’s top 20 national lending partners, and approximately 100 additional regional and community lending partners, the Veterans Pledge Initiative is intended to assist an additional 2,000 veterans with obtaining loans to start or expand small business.  Potential lending to veterans may result in as much as $475 million in new funding over the next five years, which will be 5% above the existing lending baseline to veterans. For more information about the Veterans Pledge Initiative, please contact the SBA district office near you.
