MISSOURI LINKED DEPOSIT PROGRAM The Missouri Linked Deposit Program partners with lending institutions to provide low-interest loans to help create and retain Missouri jobs, expand the economy and strengthen communities statewide. The Missouri Linked Deposit Program helps qualified lenders from Missouri better serve Missouri-based companies and agricultural operations by reducing the interest rate on certain loans that borrowers can use to improve their businesses. State Treasurer Clint Zweifel is committed to making the process simple and the program easy to use, serving as a knowledgeable resource to lenders and borrowers. The Missouri Linked Deposit Program is well-funded with a total of $720 million available.

PROGRAM PROCESS Treasurer Zweifel is committed to making the Missouri Linked Deposit Program process simple and the program easy to use for approved lending institutions and borrowers. 1.A borrower applies for a loan at a qualified lending institution. The lending institution applies its normal lending procedures to assess the creditworthiness of the borrower. 2.Once the loan is approved, the borrower or lender expresses interest in the Missouri Linked Deposit Program. 3.The lender works with the borrower to submit the requisite loan and deposit applications via secure online application system found here: https://www.treasurer.mo.gov/linkeddepositloanapps/default.aspxhttps://www.treasurer.mo.gov/linkeddepositloanapps/default.aspx 4.Treasurer Zweifel’s office determines the eligibility of the borrower for the Missouri Linked Deposit Program. 5.Many loans can be approved within 10 business days. If there are problems with the application, Treasurer Zweifel’s office will notify the lender so those issues can be addressed prior to approval. 6.The lender is notified if the Missouri Linked Deposit Program loan is approved and the staff works with the lender on placement of the deposit. 7.Upon approval by Treasurer Zweifel’s office, the bank pledges collateral, if needed, and Treasurer Zweifel deposits the funds through ACH.
GENERAL REQUIREMENTS A depository contract is required with Treasurer Zweifel’s office. Any qualified lending institution - whether large or small, urban or rural – can apply to partner with Treasurer Zweifel to access this program for their customers. Deposits must be fully collateralized. Collateral can include certain securities or FHLB letters of credit. Acceptable collateral is posted on the website (http://www.treasurer.mo.gov/policiesandinformation.aspx). Unused amounts of the linked deposits are charged at the comparable market rate. Early prepayment of loans may require payment at this higher rate. Treasurer Zweifel’s office can provide lender options to avoid this higher payment. A multi-year fixed rate loan is available on all Missouri Linked Deposit Program loans. Audits are conducted periodically to ensure compliance with State laws. Borrowers with employees will have to verify the immigration status of their employees. All borrowers will have to provide a tax clearance letter. Ineligible uses of the program include: speculative commercial developments; residential real estate; finance companies; subsidiaries of foreign companies; non-profit institutions.
