Frequently Asked Questions About the SBA 504 Program

Q. What if my small business expansion includes creating work efficiencies to limit the number of jobs created? Can I still qualify for SBA 504?

A. Most small business projects involve the creation of jobs; however, some involve just a change of ownership, a business that is not labor intensive, or improved technology that eliminates the need for manpower. These situations are still eligible for SBA 504 if they meet one of SBA’s Public Policy goals of Rural Development, Woman/Minority/Veteran Ownership, Expansion of Exports, or Area Development.
