The Commercial Bank Participation Loan Program is generally “market driven” in terms of the

rates, terms and conditions offered to a borrower. In most instances, BND’s participation under

this program is needed to assist a financial institution with a borrower whose financing needs

have outgrown the legal lending or exposures limits of the originating lender.

Small Business

BND has a variety of small business programs available. Listed below is a short summary of each.

Business Development Loan Program


The Business Development Loan Program assists new and existing businesses in

obtaining loans that would have a higher degree of risk than would normally be

acceptable to a lending institution.

Beginning Entrepreneur Loan Guarantee Program


This program assists in business start-up financing by providing a financial institution

with an 85% guaranty of a loan not to exceed $100,000.

Ag PACE Program - (Agriculture Partnership in Assisting Community Expansion)


The Ag PACE program provides interest buydown on loans to farmers who are investing

in nontraditional agricultural activities to supplement farm income. The program funds

are used to reduce the interest rate on loans which have been approved by a local

lender and BND. The farmer shall have as his principal occupation, prior to applying for

the program, the production of agricultural commodities or livestock.

PACE Program - (Partnership in Assisting Community Expansion)


The PACE Fund assists North Dakota communities in expanding their economic base by

providing for new job development.

The PACE program has two major elements: (1) the participation by BND with a local

lender in a community based loan, and (2) the participation by the PACE Fund with the

local community in reducing the borrower's overall interest rate.

Flex PACE Program

Qualified Businesses - The Flex Pace feature of the PACE program provides interest buy

down to borrowers that do not fit into the traditional definition of a PACE qualifying

business. Under Flex PACE, the community determines eligibility and accountability

standards. Flex PACE allows communities the ability to provide assistance to borrowers

with a business focus or need outside of the current requirements of PACE, such as jobs

retention, technology creation with no new jobs, retail, smaller tourist businesses and

essential community services.
