Revolving Funds - good models?

  • 1.  Revolving Funds - good models?

    Posted 07-30-2020 15:59
    We recently received an inquiry about revolving funds programs from an agency interested in launching one. It would include but not necessarily be limited to historic properties. I know there have been successful programs in the past and I have the SCAD report from 2014, but I'm not sure of the current status of any of them. If you have a successful program in your state, please let me know! I'm especially interested in government-run programs or partnerships. Links to the program pages are most welcome.
    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Michigan Historic Preservation Network's Revolving Fund program is unique, since it offers intervention loans and pre-development loans.
