SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CommunityExpress Pilot Program was established in 1999 based on the Agency’s SBAExpress Program. Lenders approved for participation in CommunityExpress are authorized to use the expedited loan processing procedures in place for the SBAExpress Program, but the loans approved under this Program must be to distressed or underserved markets. To encourage lenders to make these loans, SBA provides its standard 75–85 percent guaranty, which contrasts with the 50 percent guaranty the Agency provides under SBAExpress. However, under CommunityExpress, participating lenders must arrange and, when necessary, pay for appropriate technical assistance for their borrowers under the program. Maximum loan amounts under this Program are limited to $250,000. SBA previously extended CommunityExpress until December 31, 2007 (72 FR 13341), to discuss and develop possible changes and enhancements to the Program. The further extension of this Program until March 30, 2008, will allow SBA to develop several new concepts designed to improve the potential effectiveness and efficiency of the program and enhance the prospects of success for the small business borrowers under it. 58 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12).
