Additional Government Loan Programs

  • State Guaranty Loan Program - City National Bank's State Guarantee Loan Program exists to help California-based small businesses obtain financing when other avenues are often unavailable. City National specializes in helping small business owners arrange state-guaranteed loans, administered by the California Office of Small Business. Loan guarantee maximum up to $1,000,000. Loans may be financed up to seven years, with a maximum amortization period of 15 years, depending on the purpose and collateral. Generally, California-based businesses who meet the Federal Government's SBA 7(a) Loan guidelines qualify for this program. Companies engaged in real estate investment and other speculative activities, lending, 'pyramid' sales activities, gambling, charitable or nonprofit activities are not eligible for this program.
  • USDA Business and Industry Program - City National works with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to provide loans to improve, develop, or finance business, industry, and employment and improve the economic and environmental climate in rural communities.
