Decision Making and Appeal Process
If your application is approved, we will prepare necessary documents and set up a meeting to review the details.
If your application is denied, we are still here to assist you. We can provide guidance on other options for financing, recommendations for other funding options and our knowledgeable staff and board are available for advice at any time.
If you would like to appeal the decision you can resubmit a second application and include additional relevant information directly to the Investment Committee.
If the Investment Committee rejects the second application the applicant does not have further recourse to appeal.
