Right now, PIDA's interest rates  are 3.00% for real estate and 3.00% for equipment financing for any PIDA borrower whose loan application is received on or before September 30 2019. Lowest rates this year! Depending on the project, rates and terms can be fixed up to 15 years.

Why choose a PIDA loan?

Many businesses are eligible for this type of loan. PIDA is not a substitute for conventional bank lending but works in conjunction with banks or other lenders to provide as much as 50% of the project cost to a maximum of $2,000,000. PIDA's below market interest rate is a major benefit for cash flow savings. Likewise, often PIDA can be valuable in structuring a project with subordinated lien positions and relaxed loan-to-value requirements. PIDA Fact Sheet.
