REAP Grant Bridge Loan

Colorado Clean Energy Fund’s REAP Grant Bridge Loan is a statewide loan designed to bridge the gap between project implementation and receipt of grant funds from the USDA Rural Energy for America Program (REAP). CCEF will work with grant applicants to secure financing ahead of the grant application. Upon loan approval, applicants will receive a Letter of Commitment (LOC) of funds to submit with their REAP grant application (worth an additional 15 points).
