Citizens Trust Bank Named an Approved Lender for the State Small Business Credit Initiative

  • August 29, 2012

The Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (the “Act”) became law in the fall of 2010.  The Act created the State Small Business Credit Initiative, which was funded to strengthen state lending programs that support small businesses and manufacturers.  As any approved lender, Citizens Trust Bank will leverage the Bank’s private lending efforts for each public dollar awarded by the State. The State Small Business Credit Initiative is expected to infuse up to $15 billion nationwide in lending to small businesses.  Participation in the loan program encourages the spirit of entrepreneurship, private lending, job expansion, and neighborhood revitalization for economic growth in the State.

“Small business and the spirit of entrepreneurship is the lifeblood of the community. It’s important to keep that spirit alive in order for our community to continue to grow and thrive,” said Cynthia N. Day, president & CEO of Citizens Trust Bank. “Our participation in the State program is a natural extension of our approach to increase small business loan potential and enhance our proactive support to the business community.”

“Through the program, business owners can expand their access to capital, facilitate business growth and promote job creation in local communities across the state,” added Day.  For more information about the GA State Small Business Credit Initiative, contact a Citizens Trust Bank financial relationship professional at 678.406.4000.
