About Northwest Business Development Association

Northwest Business Development Association was established in 1982 and is a non-profit Certified Development Company (CDC). We are licensed by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to help provide and manage SBA’s 504 loan program.

Our mission is to support business growth and job creation. We do this by providing excellent small business loans along with local lenders and the SBA.

Northwest Business Development Association works with the SBA to organize, package, process, and fund the 504 loan. This saves both the business and the lender time and effort.

We are very proud to play a part in our area’s economic growth.
