» The SBA’s Gulf Opportunity Pilot Loan Program has been extended through September for small businesses in northwest Florida counties that were included in the presidential disaster declaration for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. “GO Loans” are available for up to $150,000 with an 85% SBA guarantee. The program waives regulations requiring the pledging of personal assets.
