Sovereign Bank to Participate in SBA "Patriot Express" Loan Initiative for the Military Community


Sovereign Bank announced today that it will participate in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) “Patriot Express” loan initiative for the military community.

Yesterday the SBA announced the launch of a comprehensive initiative that focuses the agency’s full menu of financial, procurement, and technical assistance programs on the military community. The capstone of the initiative is a streamlined loan product based on the SBA’s highly successful SBA Express loan program.

The Patriot Express Initiative includes new and enhanced programs and services for veterans and members of the military community wanting to establish or expand small businesses. Eligible military community members include: veterans, service-disabled veterans, active-duty members participating in the military’s Transition Assistance Program, Reservists and National Guard members, current spouses of any of the above, and the widowed spouse of a service member or veteran who died during service or of a service-connected disability.

“We are pleased to participate in the Patriot Express Initiative and honored to offer loans to veterans and their families who have proudly served our country,” said Joseph P. Campanelli, president and chief executive officer.
