|POLICY TITLE||COUNCIL LOAN SUPPORT|
|DATE ADOPTED||MARCH 2001|
|CURRENT AS AT||SEPTEMBER 2020|
|TO BE REVIEWED||SEPTEMBER 2023|
To provide a rationale for Swan Hill Rural City Council (Council) to selectively support organisations by way of direct loan finance.
This policy applies to all Councillors and employees of Council.
Council may provide loan support for new facilities or facility upgrade to not for profit Community Organisations where clear economic, social or environmental benefits will accrue to a broad range of Council residents.
Council will develop a procedure to be used when considering if Council may provide loan funds to various organisations. The procedure will:-
a) Require organisations to provide sufficient information to show they can repay the debt.
b) Require a contribution from the organisation that at least matches the amount of the loan.
c) Specify a maximum loan amount of $100,000 and maximum term of the loan of seven years.
d) Specify that organisations which have failed to honour past commitments will not be funded.
