SBA Lending 2019 Update: Guidance on the Latest Changes to Policies, Procedures & Documentation
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm MT

In recent years, the US Small Business Administration’s 7(a) Loan Program has been subject to increased regulatory oversight and statutory compliance by Congress and the SBA’s Office of Credit Risk Management (OCRM). As a result, the SBA has issued new proposed rules impacting many aspects of credit underwriting and closing of SBA 7(a) loans. For banks participating in the SBA 7(a) Loan Program, it's critical to remain updated on the proposed rules, latest policy changes, and best practices for underwriting, documenting, and closing SBA 7(a) loans in compliance with current rules and regulations. Understanding recent program changes ensures your bank will continue to benefit from this profitable loan program and provide a valuable loan product to your small business customers.
