CSRLFP Overview

The Charter School Revolving Loan Fund (CSRFL) Program provides low-cost loans of up to $250,000 to charter schools, with priority given to schools opening in the current fiscal year. The Authority conducts extensive credit evaluations, makes funding recommendations, executes loan agreements, creates payment schedules, disburses funds, offsets loan payments, collects delinquent or defaulted loans, and develops program fund reconciliations and projections. This program, previously administered by the California Department of Education, was transferred to the Authority in 2013-14.
