Please note the following updates:
Beginner Track 1-A: 504 Loan Programs | Speakers will be Cindy Esterling, Great Lakes Asset Corporation and Jason Monnett, Wisconsin Business Development Finance Corporation
Beginner Track 1-B: New topic! Please note new title and topic for this session!
The When and How Much of Guaranty Purchase Repairs - The SOP 50 57 recommends that lenders include repair estimates in their purchase request packages. This puts a new burden on lenders to identify when a repair may be appropriate and to calculate just how much the repair amount should be. Jane Butler, NAGGL, will help to demystify the concept of "repair" and use real-life scenarios provided by the National Guaranty Purchase Center to provide tips on exactly what information lenders should now include in purchase requests.
(If you had already registered for the previous topic, please email us to change sessions by May 8. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience. Email to: email@example.com)
General Track 3-B: Effective Credit Enhancements Outside of the SBA - While SBA programs are the most widely used credit enhancements, there are other effective options available through various Federal and State programs. These alternative programs often fill niches and meet needs that SBA cannot. Panel members from WEDC, WHEDA and USDA-Rural Development will provide an overview of the programs they have available. Case studies will be used to help demonstrate the various ways these programs can be used.
