Why You Should Consider Government Loans?

Many clients ask us why they should consider applying for government loans. They initially express a lack of enthusiasm because they have to pay the loans back and would rather deal with their banks. Here is what you should know about the government loans to make an informed application decision.
1. No Interest. All government loans are interest-free. So you immediately save on interest.
2. No Collateral. In case if something goes wrong, the government won’t come after your home.
3. Grace Period. Many government loan programs allow flexible grace periods, i.e. you don’t start repayment until 12 months after your project is completed.
4. Large Caps. Most of the non-repayable grants are capped to $100,000. There are government loan programs that pay over $10 million.
5. High Stacking Limits. You can combine the government loans with the grants and tax credits, up to a maximum of 75% of the project cost.
6. Repay Commercial Loan Sooner. The government provides loans on a quarterly or annual basis. You can pay back 35%-50% of the commercial loan amount with the government loan, and save on interest and repay the commercial loan sooner at the same time.
