Procedure

Since there are a great many conditions that have to be met to qualify for tax-free financing, it would be advisable to first describe your proposed project in a letter, email, or telephone call to the LIDA solicitor.  A preliminary determination can then be made as to the qualification of the project under the Pennsylvania Act and the Internal Revenue Code.

If it seems probable that the project would qualify, then the detailed application forms required by the Pa. Department of Community and Economic Development would be completed. For most projects, the two forms required are the Single Application for Assistance and the IDA Application Appendix.
