After Loan Approval

1. Before Loan Execution

Before executing a loan with the Authority, prospective borrowers must meet any conditions determined by the Authority’s staff and Board of Directors prior to loan execution.  Some of these conditions may include the following, but other conditions may apply on a case by case basis: 

  • The governmental agency must implement an increase in user rates sufficient to meet the Authority’s rate covenant.

  • The governmental agency must have all other sources of project financing in place.

  • The governmental agency must meet all mandatory Technical, Managerial, and Financial requirements (“DWRF” only).

1. Before Loan Application Legal Requirements

  • The governmental agency will also be required to submit a signed loan authorizing resolution/ordinance before loan execution.

  • Additionally, Authority loan agreements require a general counsel for the governmental agency to sign an opinion on the governmental agency that becomes part of the loan agreement.

  • A “Red Book” bond counsel also must sign off on an opinion that becomes part of the loan agreement.

2. After Loan Execution:

  • All Authority loans are subject to Davis Bacon wage requirements and other Federal requirements. 

  • Please note that the Rate Covenant and Additional Bonds Test do not apply to loans with a General Obligation source of repayment.
