The Small Business Administration presented San Antonio-based LiftFund with four awards at the 2015 Mid America Lenders Conference that took place last week in Dallas.

LiftFund accepted the awards in SBA’s Region VI, which includes Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas. LiftFund was named Top Microlender; Top Community Advantage Lender; Lower Rio Grande Valley District Top Community Development Corp./504 Volume Lender; and El Paso District Top Community Development Corp./504 Volume Lender.

The SBA honored the top nonprofit, community-based organizations that are focused on revitalizing designated communities. These corporations work with participating lenders to provide financing to small businesses. LiftFund, formerly Accion Texas, is one of 5,000 organizations of this kind.
