Facilities Financing for DC Public Charter Schools: OSSE Policy and Guidance

Public charter local education agencies (LEAs) or nonprofits authorized to secure financing on their behalf may apply for a direct loan of up to $2 million and/or a credit enhancement of up to $1 million to support facilities projects. Direct loans are used to directly pay for project costs whereas credit enhancements are guarantees held by the OPCSFS that help the public charter LEA to secure additional financing for facilities projects from other sources. These programs offer competitive interest rates and favorable terms which make OPCSFS Direct Loan and Credit Enhancement revolving funds attractive options to public charter LEAs in the District.
