A Project must achieve at least one of the objectives listed below for either jobs or economic development goals.

Job Creation or Retention

A Project must create or retain one Job Opportunity per an amount of 504 loan funding as specified below:

  • At least 1 job for every $75,000 of SBA financing or, if a small manufacturer, then 1 job for every $120,000.
  • Jobs do not need to be at the Project site but at least 75% must be in the community where the Project is located.
  • Job retention must demonstrate that jobs would be lost to the community.


A Project that achieves any of the following community development or public policy goals is eligible if Business Lending Partners’ overall portfolio of 504 loans, including this proposed Project, meets or exceeds Business Lending Partners’ required Job Opportunity average. Loan applications must indicate how the Project will meet the specified economic development objective.
