Asset Modernization GRANT Webinar at 2:00 Today

 

The Nebraska Investment Finance Authority has developed a two-prong program designed to accelerate investments by small manufacturers in modernizing their fixed depreciable assets – machinery and equipment. The incentives are available for investments made by existing manufacturers, agricultural product and food processing companies that will, generally within three months, modernize their production assets, expand their production lines to increase market share and/or target international markets with new products.

The Initiative is intended to stimulate modernization of assets by Nebraska small businesses (from 5 to 100 employees, with net depreciable Nebraska-based assets up to $5 million). The resources are available as either a grant (“MAG”) or loan loss reserve (“CAP”).

The Modern Asset Grant Program (MAG) provides a direct grant in an amount up to 6% of eligible basis for new or used (manufactured after 2005) machinery and equipment acquired and placed in service by an eligible business.

The Capital Access Program (CAP) provides a loan loss reserve contribution in an amount up to 5% of the eligible amounts borrowed for new or used (manufactured after 2005) machinery and equipment acquired and placed in service by an eligible business. CAP Awards match lender and borrower contributions of up to 5% for a total reserve of up to 10% on a CAP loan. A lender’s initial $500,000 in CAP loans qualifies for an additional bonus contributed by NIFA to the loan loss reserve.
