A message from Reggie Thomas as Huntington Bank, a member of NABA:
Huntington has never been more focused on looking out for small businesses who put in countless hours, face unique challenges, and impact [their or our] community exponentially.
That’s why I am proud to introduce Huntington’s Lift Local BusinessSM program. As part of our recently announced Community Plan, we are committing $25 million to support women, veterans, and racially and ethnically diverse businesses in accessing the capital they need to start or grow their business.
As the #1 Small Business Administration (SBA) lender in our region for the past 12 years†, we developed this expanded program to help in breaking down the barriers to traditional financing that diverse businesses often face. Features include:
Access to capital at a low cost to the business
Zero origination fees
Huntington pays SBA fees
Lower credit score requirements
Free financial education courses ($1,500 value)
If you are interested in learning more, I would be happy to schedule time to meet with you to discuss. I have also attached a flyer with additional information as well. If you know of business owners who could benefit from this program, please feel free to forward the flyer.
Welcome means Welcome to All at Huntington.
The Huntington National Bank is Member FDIC.
Lift Local BusinessSM is a service mark of Huntington Bancshares Incorporated.
