Incentive Size and Funding SourceLoans are available in amounts from roughly $100,000 to $2.5 million. Interest rates will be determined on a case-by-case basis, but are generally expected to be from 3.5% to 6.5%. The loan term will be set to correspond to the expected life of the equipment, up to 15 years. Loans will be secured by the financed assets, or other collateral such as personal or corporate guarantees.

The program will operate as a revolving loan program where the fund is replenished by interest and principal repayments made on prior loans. The fund was initially capitalized with $12 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding, to which the TRF has added an additional $36 million in leveraged funds.
