The CWSRF financial staff will review the last three audited financial statements to determine the creditworthiness of potential borrowers.  Should any problems be discovered, our staff will notify the borrower and attempt to resolve them so the project can proceed as planned.  In some extraordinary cases, it may be necessary to modify the project if we are unable to lend the entire amount requested.

Projects may be segmented to fit the borrower's ability to repay and/or our availability of funds to lend.

The following terms are currently in effect (as of January 26, 2009):
