Description of Subjects/Issues Rules will be updated with general changes to formatting, grammar and nonsubstantive changes plus the application process, process for evaluating applications, interest rates section and repayment of loans areas will be updated.
Purpose/Objective of Rule The purpose of the rules is to define the eligibility requirements, prescribe the application and selection processes, and to detail certain terms for securing financial assistance, for public transportation projects within the state, from the Colorado State Infrastructure Bank [COSIB]. COSIB is a fund that CDOT administers to public projects. The majority of the money in the fund is received from the federal government. The COSIB program was developed as part of a federal pilot program. It has been successful and continues to be a useful program for local communities. The bank makes loans available to communities in all areas of Colorado to help fund transportation projects. These rules apply to any public or private project sponsor of public transportation projects within the state. The COSIB offers several advantages to communities looking for financing of public transportation projects. The COSIB acts as a bank to provide capital for funding projects in the short term. As project loans are re-paid, more capital becomes available for new projects. Advantages of using COSIB include low interest rates which are below market rates which lower the overall cost of borrowing. Standardized project agreements and loan documents reduce processing time and legal fees for the applicant communities or entities.
