Specializing in SBA Loans

At Huntington, we’re not generalists – we’re specialists. We have a dedicated team of skilled SBA specialists, underwriting, and closing teams to support you throughout the SBA loan process. It takes hard work, determination, and patience to pursue your business goals, and we look out for you by assisting you throughout your lending experience.

We are also an SBA Preferred Lender, meaning we have the authority to make final decisions on most SBA loans, rather than waiting for approval from the SBA. This many times allows you to receive the financing you need so you can launch your business, faster.
