Nationally, the SBA approved more than 70,000 loans in the 7(a) and 504 loan programs during FY 2016. These programs provided nearly $28.9 billion to small businesses and supported nearly 694,000 jobs. Locally in the SBA Alaska District, the SBA approved a total of 168 loans in the 7(a) and 504 loan programs during FY 2016 totaling $75.8  million.  “Thanks to the hard work and outreach by our lending partners, SBA staff, and our resource partners, as well as the small business owners themselves, we have been able to put more capital into the hands of Alaska’s entrepreneurs,” said Nancy Porzio, District Director SBA Alaska Office.
