How it Works
Each 504 loan package has three elements:
We lend up to 40 percent of the total fixed asset financing need, to a maximum of $5,000,000*.
BANK / LENDER
A private lender, usually a bank, lends up to 50 percent of the project’s total cost.
The business provides a minimum of 10 percent of the necessary funds.
(Higher equity requirements exist for start-up or leveraged companies in specialized industries.)
*This amount can be increased to $5,500,000 for manufacturing concerns or “green” projects (projects that create at least 10% reduction in energy consumption. See tab on Green Projects for more information).
The interest rate on our loans are fixed and generally a little above the rate of long-term Treasury Bonds. The loan maturity is 10, 20, or 25 years. The interest rate on the companion bank loan is negotiated by the borrower and typically is floating. Calculate your loan
Advantages of Choosing Us
a financing alternative
Our combination of fixed and floating interest rate financing provides an effective hedge against unfavorable interest rate fluctuations. If rates increase, the borrower has locked in the relatively low Capital Access Corporation-Kentucky rate on up to 40 percent of the financing. If rates decrease, the borrower floats downward with the bank’s loan.
