SBA Quick Bond Program

SBA Quick Bond Program Increase to $400,000

SBA Quick Bond Application

The SBA Quick Bond Program, previously capped at $250,000, is designed to help contractors that are declined from other programs due to low credit score or other reasons. The SBA Quick Bond program is now being extended up to $400,000 in late September, 2017. This means that contractors may be able to get SBA Bonds up to $400,000 without having to provide company financial information.

SBA Quick Bond Program – No Minimum Credit Score

A key component of the SBA Quick Bond Program is that there is no minimum credit score. Most quick bond programs that do not require financial documents use a minimum credit score to decline contractors. Utilizing the SBA Quick Bond Program, CCI Surety is able to help contractors obtain bonding, even if they have a low credit score. CCI Surety does still review credit for other issues that may effect the underwriting outcome. Our underwriters are skilled at working with SBA Bond Programs in general as well as other programs to help contractors that have difficulty obtaining bonds or quick bonds.

SBA Quick Bond Program – CCI Surety Small Contractor Program

CCI Surety has a program that is geared towards working with small contractors. The SBA Quick Bond Program is a key part of the program but there are many other tools that can help qualify small contractors. Funds control may be used with or even without the SBA Quick Bond Program in order to help contractors that may not have enough working capital or other financial difficulties.

SBA Quick Bond – Dedicated Personel

There is a dedicated staff for Small Contractors. Even contractors on small projects receive the full attention of the CCI Surety Small Contractor Program.

New SBA Bond Guarantee Program

Written by BooAdmin on . Posted in Uncategorized

This February we were excited to report the increases to the new SBA Bond Guarantee Program. In March, we are even more excited to report that we are already having success utilizing the program for bonds that would have previously been too large for the SBA Bond Guarantee Program. Most recently, our Florida Office was able to get a $5.2M project in Georgia written. Our experience utilizing the current SBA Bond Guarantee Program increases your chance to successfully place your client’s bond.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any accounts that don’t fit your standard markets, or if you need a second non-standard opinion. Although the SBA program is exciting we have many different tools we can utilize to get the job done.

Sincerely,
Jim Dillenburg – [email protected]

SBA Details

Written by BooAdmin on . Posted in Uncategorized

All of the accounts we work on are non-standard, which means they always have at least some challenges. Even though we’ve had a long history of success utilizing the old SBA Guarantee Program limits, I was interested to see how working with larger contracts would go. Working closely with the SBA, agent, and contractor we were able to overcome all challenges. This is a deal that would not have been completed without the support of the SBA Bond Guarantee Program.

Negative or Insufficient Working Capital

Escrow Agreements/Funds Control + 5% Escrow Deposit The SBA recognizes the value of utilizing escrow agreements and funds control to potentially mitigate risk on projects. Utilizing an escrow agreement and funds control process in addition to a 5% deposit into the escrow account allows CCI to utilize the program even if the contractor has negative or insufficient working capital.
Additional Options Although not typically used, additional forms of collateral or other considerations such as third party indemnity can also be utilized to approve a contractor for the SBA.
