Access business loan assistance to expand facilities, increase employment, and enhance economic activity through a Linked Deposit Program.
The Linked Deposit Program is designed to encourage companies to add or retain employees by providing an interest rate subsidy on their bank financing. It is preferred that companies apply for the State of Ohio and Lucas County Linked Deposit Programs, in conjunction with the Sylvania Area Community Improvement Corporation’s Linked Deposit Program.
Sylvania area companies can now access business loan assistance to expand facilities, increase employment, and enhance economic activity through a Linked Deposit Program.
Linked Deposits work as follows: the SCIC will receive 3% reduced earnings on its Certificates of Deposit at area banks as long as the bank passes along the 3% savings to the company or participant via a reduced loan interest rate. The Certificates of Deposit are provided only to reduce the interest rate and not as collateral, therefore the principal of the SCIC’s funds are not at risk.
The program has a $50,000 maximum allocation per project, with special consideration to proposals leading to job creation and economic impact in the Sylvania area. Companies receive emphasis if they apply in partnership with the Lucas County or State of Ohio Linked Deposit Program.
