The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) will accept applications for participation in the Community Development Revolving Loan Fund's [Fund] Loan Program in the last quarter of 2009, subject to availability of funds. The Fund's total appropriation is $13.4 million. Because the CDRLF will be fully loaned in early 2009, new loans will be awarded from loan repayments made throughout the year in 2009. Based on the CDRLF's aggregate loan amortization schedule, approximately $3.1 million will be repaid and available for loans in late 2009. Therefore, the loan application period will open in the last quarter of 2009. Application procedures for the 2009 Fund Loan Program will be posted to the NCUA Web site.
Applications for participation may be obtained from and should be submitted to: NCUA, Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives, 1775 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22314-3428.
