We Welcome Partners

Now, more than ever, CBAC could not help small businesses thrive and contribute to our regional economy without partners like you. We work with banks and lenders, accounting firms, attorneys, Realtors® and other real estate professionals, and local and county government agencies throughout the region to help your clients and constituents get the financing they need to grow their businesses and improve our communities. 

Banks & Lenders

Banks & Lenders

Do you have business customers that need financing you cannot provide in whole or in part?   Would you like to help your small business customer get the financing needed without losing the entire business relationship to someone else?

Professionals discuss financial projections

If you are a bank or lending institution challenged to get your customers the financing they need without jeopardizing the entire business relationship, CBAC might be able to help.

Banker explaining services to clients

CBAC regularly makes loans in partnership with banks and other lenders. In most cases, we take a subordinated position to you, which decreases your risk on the deal.


You can use your own application, supporting documentation requirements, fees, underwriting criteria, and terms. Your borrowers can use the combined loan proceeds for acquisition and renovation of owner-occupied commercial real estate as well as leasehold improvements, equipment, inventory, and working capital. Most importantly, you eliminate the risk of losing your other lines of business with that customer to a competitor.


Maybe your customer is not quite ready for bank or lender financing. By referring them to CBAC, you can help them get the funds they need without the worry of losing the other business that they have with you to CBAC. Since we are a CDFI, non-bank lender, we don’t require borrowers to move other lines of business to us.


If you want to learn more about how CBAC might be able to work with you to assist your clients, we would like to hear from you. You can call us at 856-966-8181 or email us at
