The Bonding Assistance Program provides assistance with new bond guarantees to small businesses. The bond underwriting is accomplished by a surety company, and the surety company has final bonding approval authority. Once the surety has given final bonding approval, the Bonding Assistance Program provides collateral up to 25% of the base contract amount, up to $200,000, on a project specific basis.
