Local Amenity Development LoansFor not-for-profit organisations
Dedicated to assisting West Midlands communities with the finance to enable them to invest in ventures that will enhance the social and environmental impact of their Community Assets.
We have a particular interest in projects that seek to reduce our carbon footprint or ameliorate negative climate change factors, so renewable energy and EV charging points would be good examples. Sustainable communities are also at the heart of our Charity parent company objectives so projects involving local transport, mobile communications for rural areas, and community shops would be examples of this. These are only examples of the type of development project the fund might support , so if you have something in mind, please just ask!.
We’d love to give grants for this type of project but unfortunately our own funders have requirements for us to lend and recycle those funds and minimum interest rates that we can apply.
Your monthly repayment fee will vary depending on your individual circumstances and how much you borrow but there is a fixed rate of 6% interest with a £500 admin fee (APR will vary between 6.5 and 7.5% ) Repayment terms are usually 12 months to five years.
We’d expect to see in the project business plan that the repayments would predominantly come from the benefits associated with the development.
