Updated Interest Rate Options for the PIDA Loan Program

For Real estate loans financing eligible land and building costs, borrowers will have the following two interest rate options:

1. Fixed interest rate for the full term of the loan (up to a 15-year period). This option is calculated using the ten-year treasury yield +150 basis points.  Based on the current ten-year treasury yield, the fixed rate option is 3.00% for the life of the loan.

2. Fixed interest rate for a seven year period set at the ten-year treasury rate +50 basis points. After seven years, the rate will reset to the ten-year treasury rate +50 basis points. Please note, the reset rate is limited to a 200 basis point increase/decrease and has a floor of 2.25%. The reset rate is then fixed for the duration of the loan.

For this option, the rate is fixed for seven years at 2.25% and will reset to the ten-year treasury rate +50 basis points after the seven year period. The reset interest rate is capped at 4.25% (200 point increase) with a 2.25% floor and will be fixed for the remaining term of the loan.

For Equipment loans:  3.00% fixed rate for the full term of the loan.

For Working capital and accounts receivable lines of credit: 3.00% fixed rate for 12 month period.

For Pollution prevention and energy efficiency loans: 2.00% fixed rate for the full term of the loan.

The rates will be in effect for loan applications received through September 30, 2016.
