The Small Business Administration has adjusted the standards used to determine eligibility to reflect inflation-driven cost increases. The resizing, the first since early 2002, reflects price increases of 8.7 percent. The SBA says that the new numbers may restore some firms' eligibility. Computations are based on receipts, net worth and financial assets. The "anchor" standard used by the SBA has risen from $6 million to $6.5 million. Other standard levels have risen accordingly.
