Pennsylvania Economic Development Financing Authority (PEDFA) Taxable Bond Program
Taxable bonds, both in pooled transactions and stand-alone transactions, may be used to finance land, building, equipment, working capital and refinancings.
- land and building acquisition
- building renovation and new construction
- machinery and equipment acquisition and installation
- designated infrastructure
- working capital
All types of businesses and projects needing access to low-cost capital
- Loans no less than $400,000
- Up to 100 percent of project costs
The weekly variable interest rates for pooled transactions are tied to the market for taxable bonds. The bond for pooled transactions is based upon a negotiated letter of credit- the borrower generally must secure a letter of credit from the bank. Terms for stand-alone bonds may be negotiated. Interest rates for stand-alone transactions may be fixed rather than variable in some cases. A $500 fee due at time of application is to be credited against the issuance fee when the project closes.
