(1) Be a for-profit entity;
(2) Have an eligible transportation-related contract;
(3) Demonstrate an eligible use for the desired credit;
(4) Be an established business with experience in the transportation industry and trade
for which the STLP loan is sought;
(5) Be certified as a DBE or have another eligible certification issued by the SBA; and
(6) Be current on all federal, state, and local tax liabilities.
(b) Eligible Transportation–Related Contract. Any fully-executed transportation-related contract, subcontract, or purchase order
held directly with DOT or with grantees and recipients receiving federal funding from
DOT for the maintenance, rehabilitation, restructuring, improvement or revitalization
of any of the nation's modes of transportation shall be considered an eligible contract.
(c) Eligibility Period. A borrower is eligible for participation in the STLP for a period up to a total

(c) of this section will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the OSDBU Director
and is subject to the following provisions:
(i) The STLP loan guarantee may be reduced; and
(ii) The STLP loan interest rate may be increased.
(2) Should any borrower currently in the STLP become ineligible per paragraph (a) of
this section during the term of a STLP loan, the failure to comply with a specific
requirement must be brought to the immediate attention of all remaining parties.
(3) Borrower ineligibility may result in a termination of the current guarantee.
