Frontier Financial Partners

Everything you need to know about SBA 504 loans from #1 CDC in state of Kansas. Buy, build or renovate your commercial space, as well as cover equipment costs and existing debt with a SBA 504 loan.


Frontier Financial Partners (FFP) was incorporated in 1985 as a non-profit organization. In 1986, the Small Business Administration (SBA) recognized FFP as a Certified Development Company, empowering it to promote economic development through SBA programs. FFP now provides an array of financial services to businesses and communities in Kansas and surrounding states.

While the central focus is the SBA 504 loan program, FFP can identify other financing sources that may better meet the borrower’s needs. FFP has a thorough understanding of the underwriting guidelines and has utilized other such incentives offered through federal and state economic lending programs.  FFP is very knowledgeable about the following programs: SBA 504 Loan Program, SBA 7(a) Loan Program, USDA Business & Industry Guaranty Loan Program, and the CDBG Loan and Grant Program. An internal Revolving Loan Program is also available to businesses in rural population areas and generally accompanies other loan options.
