H.R. 6921: Small Business Energy Loan Enhancement Act

Earlier this month, Congressman Jason Crow (D-CO-6) and Congressman Don Bacon (R-NE-2) introduced H.R. 6921: Small Business Energy Loan Enhancement Act. The bipartisan legislation would nearly double the loan amounts available to small businesses making energy investments through the Small Business Administration's 504/CDC loan program, increasing the maximum amount from $5.5 million to $10 million.

BOMA International has played a significant role in both the drafting of the policy language and the introduction of H.R. 6921: Small Business Energy Loan Enhancement Act. With consultation from, and at the direction of the Government Affairs Committee, BOMA International has made H.R. 6921: Small Business Energy Loan Enhancement Act one of our top priorities for the second session of the 117th Congress. This legislation would provide an invaluable financial lifeline to small businesses within the commercial real estate industry, nearly doubling the funding available for critical investments that can deliver modern, smarter and more energy efficient buildings and move the needle on carbon reduction.

As this bill now moves through the legislative and committee process, the support and help from BOMA International membership is critical. BOMA International has two asks of our membership:
