California Small Business Loan Guarantee Program (SBLGP)

Helping California Small Business Thrive

The California Small Business Loan Guarantee Program (SBLGP) is administered by the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency and works to help businesses create and retain jobs, while at the same time encouraging investment into low- to moderate-income communities. Recognizing that small businesses are the backbone of the state’s economy and the main drivers of private job creation, the SBLGP enables small businesses to not only obtain a loan it could not otherwise obtain, but to establish a favorable credit history with a lender. With that, the business may obtain further loans on its own, without the assistance of the program.

Small businesses owners that employ five hundred (500) people or less may apply for a SBLGP loan by contacting one of the Financial Development Corporation (FDC) below.
