Additional Details

Raise Green reserves the right to terminate the loan program at its discretion at any time, and modify the loan criteria during the pilot Loan Program without directly contacting you.

We will review each Loan request on a case by case basis, and reserves the right in its discretion to determine if it will extend a Loan. Not all Loans that submit all required information will be approved. Under certain circumstances, Raise Green may provide exceptions to the Loan Program Criteria.

It's important to us that you are able to get the resources you need to start your project. Therefore, we do not charge any fees for our loan program.

Please note that taxes may apply to your loan. Since these are zero interest loans, you may be deemed to have recognized income equal to the interest that would be charged at the Applicable Federal Rate (AFR). For example, you can find the current AFR here – which for 120 day loans (short-term) is currently 0.14%, so you might expect a tax of 0.14%, or $1.40 for a $1,000 loan during the year you receive your loan. Availability may vary by State. None of this constitutes, legal, financial, or tax advice.
