Small but Mighty: A Review of the SBA Microloan Program

0 Thursday, March 07, 2019 @ 10:00

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax, and Capital Access will meet for a hearing titled, “Small but Mighty: A Review of the SBA Microloan Program.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Thursday, March 7, 2019 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

The Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Microloan program has been in existence for over 20 years, and in that time, it has made a significant impact enhancing access to capital for America’s smallest businesses. In that time, the program has grown from a pilot program to a fully permanent program with success stories nationwide. However, for all the growth that the program has experienced, many of the rules governing it have not kept up with its growth. The hearing will review the program, how it functions, and explore what changes to the program would maximize its performance and efficiency.
