The Siouxland Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) has a history of successful partnerships with lenders across Iowa and the region. From plastics extrusion (right) to a dance studio, lip balm manufacturing to an RV retailer, we’ve worked with a variety of companies to build and add jobs, expand operations and grow local businesses.

Incorporated in 1979 by a group of Siouxland leaders in an attempt to help stimulate the tri-state region’s economy, organizers believed the SEDC could have a positive impact on the economy by assisting businesses in modernizing, diversifying, or expanding their operations, and by encouraging new business starts.

But their success starts with lending partners who believe in the power of small business. Want to work with us – fill out the form below.

Steps of the 504 Loan Process



There is an initial assessment conducted with the borrower and lender to discuss the project and the SBA loan parameters.The borrower shall complete and provide all documentation needed by SEDC.


SEDC Loan Committee Approval

The SEDC staff performs loan underwriting for the project and receives loan approval from the SEDC Loan Committee. This process takes approximately two weeks.


SBA Loan Approval

SEDC submits the loan application packet to the SBA Loan Processing Center in Sioux City, Iowa for final approval. Approval is usually received within one week.


SBA Written Commitment

The SBA issues a commitment entitled “Authorization for Debenture Guarantee.” This document outlines the terms and conditions which must be met in order to close the SBA loan. SEDC and the borrower review the Authorization for Debenture Guarantee and sign the document.


Bank Closing

A copy of the Authorization for Debenture Guarantee is given to the lender. The lender provides the interim financing for the project. The lender must advance funds for both the first and second liens until such time that the SBA loan can be closed and funded.

SEDC Closing

SEDC will close the SBA loan once all construction and/or renovations have been completed. For projects that involve the purchase of an existing building, the closing will take place as soon as all of the Authorization for Debenture Guarantee requirements have been met. The borrower is responsible for all closing costs incurred by SEDC. This includes but is not limited to: title insurance premiums, recording fees, legal fees, flood determination fees, and courier services.

SBA Funding

There is approximately a 45-60 day waiting period from the time the SBA loan closes until the SBA loan funds. The borrower is responsible to pay interim interest to the lender until the funding occurs. On the funding date, the lender receives a wire transfer, to reduce the interim note to the approved permanent note balance. Any excess funds must be paid by the borrower and not added into the 1st lien note. The interest rate for the SBA loan is determined when the SBA loan funds.

SBA Loan Payments

Beginning on the 1st of the month following the funding date, the borrower will begin to make payments on the SBA loan. The borrower will have a separate payment to the lender and to the SBA. The SBA payment is collected by Colson Services, the SBA servicing agent.

SBA Loan Servicing

SEDC requires that borrowers submit annual financial statements prepared by an independent accountant within 90 days of the business’s fiscal year end. SEDC also requires that all insurance remains current and the real estate taxes remain paid on all properties
