An estimated $200,000 – $300,000 are made available for new loans each year from the repayment of existing loans. Loans are made at market interest rates unless a hardship exists, in which case a reduced rate may be granted by the Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT).


A county, city, village, town or other government entity, a private non-profit organization that is sponsored by an eligible community, or a Transit Commission may apply.
