Express Programs are designed for small or emerging construction contractors. They are for contractors with infrequent and smaller surety bond needs, not exceeding $400,000 for single size projects. Personal credit scores are the only underwriting information requested for those programs with limits to $400,000. The Merchants’ bonding program has single limits to $400,000, but does require the submission of an in-house business and personal financial statement. Applications for these programs can be found by clicking on one of the buttons below.
Small Business Administration Guarantee Bonds (SBA). The federal government, acting through the SBA, provides surety bond assistance for small or emerging contractors.

We are one of the largest providers of SBA bonds in the country. Please contact me for further details.
