CSRLFP Overview

The Charter School Revolving Loan Fund is a program that provides low-interest loans of up to $250,000 to new charter schools to assist them with meeting the purposes of the school’s approved charter. The program is available to any charter school that is not a conversion of an existing public school, and that has not yet completed the full term of its initial charter.

Since the California School Finance Authority (CSFA) took over administration of the program in 2013, nearly $2.25 million of previously defaulted loan funds have been recovered, and new regulations implemented have led to a low 4% default rate on loans underwritten by CSFA.
