Small Business Administration (SBA) Loan & Relief Options

NH Business Finance Authority Loan Programs
CAP Program – Providing banks the ability to lend up to $200,000 to small businesses and non-profits across the state. CAP loans can be used for working capital, temporary needs, lines of credit, or long-term assets. These loans have rapid approval times and can be deployed in situations that banks normally could not lend into. CAP is a powerful resource to help companies bridge the gap until COVID-19 subsides.
Temporary Loans – A direct loan program from the BFA in an amount up to $2,000,000. These loans are designed to be temporary in nature with a maximum three year term. The amortization rate is flexible, and the BFA can take a subordinate position to the bank. For companies who need temporary loan capital that the bank cannot provide, the BFA is ready to support their needs wherever possible.
