COMMERICAL BUSINESS APPLICATIONS
UNDER THE SMALL CITIES PROGRAM
INCOME LOAN PROGRAM FOR THE TARGET AREA
Effective February 20, 2013, THE RED WING HOUSING AND REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (HRA) will accept applications from individuals and entities for the Small Cities Program Income Loan Program for commercial redevelopment in a target area that includes portions of the Old West Main and Downtown areas.

The loan application minimum is $25,000 and the maximum loan application is $50,000. One half of the approved loan amount will be amortized over 10 years for repayment and the other half will be a deferred forgivable loan after 10 years. The interest rate is 0% on both portions.
The HRA Board of Commissioners has allocated $200,000 to this program. The HRA will accept applications only until we have 200% or $400,000 in loan applications on hand. After the HRA receives 200% of the allocation in applications, it will no longer accept applications. Applications will compete for the funding with other applications in the application pool. Applications will be funded in the order of completion and approval by the Board of Commissioners until all funds are used. Consequently, time is of the essence in completing applications as one-half of all possible applications will be unable to receive funding. The HRA intends to seek additional funding later but can not guarantee that all applications will receive funding.
Questions regarding the loan program can be addressed to Randal Hemmerlin, Executive Director at (651) 301-7028. The HRA will be assigning qualified contract fee loan processors to complete the application process for the HRA and to work with applicants.
Federal Davis Bacon wage decisions will be enforced on these loans. For more information see: http://www.dol.gov/compliance/laws/comp-dbra.htm
