Lending Criteria & Application Information

Lending Priorities

Capital Fund prioritizes loans for health center projects that respond to current pressing health care needs including providing new access points in areas that are medically underserved; expanding capacity or adding services in communities that are currently served by health centers but for which there is a demonstrated need; replacing/repairing outdated, inadequate existing facilities and equipping existing and new facilities with state-of-the-art medical, dental, and HIT equipment. Priority will be given to those health centers that utilize Capital Link’s technical assistance services.
