The Authority does not have a formal application, but requires all prospective borrowers to submit a written request stating the institution's intent to issue tax-exempt debt through the Authority. The request should include a description of the project to be financed, and the estimated amount to be financed. Upon receipt of the request for financing from the institution, CHEFA will send an application letter to be executed by the borrower.
The prospective borrower also submits payment with the commitment letter in the amount of $20,000 for the transaction, of which $5,000 represents CHEFA's total up-front fee.

Some of the information needed from the borrower and responsibilities for the financing include the following:
