FY 2019 President's PROPOSED Budget 

Small Business Administration Budget Proposal >

More >

FY 2019 budget and we will provide more written analysis in coming weeks. It is important to recall that this is a proposed budget that will be finalized by Congress. A couple of the key proposals:

$30 billion 7(a) authorization cap
Increases maximum ongoing fee from 0.55% to 0.625%
Sets the ongoing fee at 0.55% for loans less than $1 million and at 0.625% for loans $1 million or more
Eliminates all borrower fee waivers not required by law (e.g., veterans SBA Express)
Increases the upfront (borrower) guaranty fee on loans $1 million or greater
Introduces a secondary market fee up to 0.05% per year of outstanding balance of loans sold 
Increases SBA Express limit to $1 million

Stay Tuned & Stay Engaged -- there is a LONG road of analysis and discussion ahead before anything in the proposed budget becomes a reality. NAGGL has already begun discussions with The Hill on the FY 2019 budget. NAGGL, as always, is on top of it and remains your source for credible information!
