FIRST NATION

14 E LIGIBLE REVENUE STRE AMS TO SUPPORT A FNFA LOAN The FNFA allows First Nations to support loans with their choice from two revenue sources: 1. Other Revenues (non-property tax): Royalties, Business revenues, Contract revenues, and Transfers from other levels of Government, IPP revenues. 2. Property Tax collected by First Nations: From individuals or businesses who reside on First Nations lands. 14

15 15 TWO RECENT FNFA CLIENTS’ STORIES FNFA Loans Since July, 2012 Membertou: refinanced existing bank loans plus infrastructure. Per Chief Terry Paul:“My community is saving $140,000 per month by refinancing our bank loan with FNFA. These savings are being re- invested into needed community infrastructure.” Tzeachten: borrowed for 4 infrastructure projects Per Chief Glenda Campbell: “Never in my lifetime did I think Tzeachten would have access to affordable financing. What we currently pay banks to service a $1 million bank loan we can now service a $3 million FNFA loan.”

16 CAPITAL/EC. DEV. PLANNING FNFA’s role in the planning process:  First Nation – outlines their desired capital and economic development projects  Prioritize these projects  Determines financing needed  FNFA – outlines for each community how loans can be structured to allow more than one capital/Ec Dev project to start simultaneously 16

17 HOW MUCH CAN A FIRST NATION BORROW FROM THE FNFA? 17 A First Nation can request FNFA loans to as much as their revenue streams can support: The “Borrowing Factors” for each $1 of revenue are:  Federal/Provincial Transfer =  Municipal Transfers =  Independent Power Projects (IPP’s) =  Provincial Gaming Revenues = 9.50  Land Benefit Agreements = 6.63  Contracts & Leases = 7.27  Band Businesses = 3.77 to 8.59  Property Tax = 3.77 to NOTE: 30 years is an example; FNFA can lend up to 30 years
