Low-cost Funding Solutions
Industrial Development Bonds
For companies looking to raise $2,000,000+ to build or expand manufacturing facilities, industrial development bonds offer a way to raise money in the tax-exempt marketplace, thereby obtaining a lower interest rate.
Similar to Industrial Development Bonds, but not as limited in project scope, RZBs represent another way for private companies to access the tax-exempt market.
Rural City Revolving Loan funds
The cities comprising the I-5 Corridor and the 5 Cities Economic Development Authority each have revolving loan funds which may be accessed by existing companies in the area or those looking to relocate to the area.
California Capital Access Program (CalCAP)
The California Capital Access Program (CalCAP) encourages banks and other financial institutions to make loans to small businesses that fall just outside of most banks' conventional underwriting standards. CalCAP is a form of loan portfolio insurance which may provide up to 100% coverage on certain loan defaults. By participating in CalCAP, lenders have available to them a proven financing mechanism to meet the financing needs of California's small businesses.
