TIFIA LOAN TERM SHEET AND AGREEMENT
The template TIFIA Loan Indicative Term Sheet and Loan Agreement have been updated to reflect current USDOT's credit policies. Links to the updated versions of both templates are provided below. The term sheet sets forth certain basic terms and conditions of TIFIA credit assistance; however, the execution of a credit agreement and subsequent disbursement of funds to a project are subject to satisfactory completion of the USDOT's creditworthiness evaluation and the agreement of terms and conditions acceptable to the USDOT. The credit agreement is the definitive agreement between the USDOT and the borrower (and the guaranteed lender, if applicable) containing all terms and conditions pursuant to which the disbursement of TIFIA credit assistance is provided.
