The Cooperative intends to fund this program with up to $20,000 annually, split between a fall and a spring funding cycle. Up to $10,000 in loans are available for Spring 2014, with $5,000 as the maximum available for each loan. Loan applications are due February 10, 2014, with a decision made by the Co-op by February 14, 2014.
