Once an application has been submitted, District III staff will complete credit checks and analyze the application. This information will be passed on to a Board of Directors, who will review the application and make a loan decision. If the Board requests additional information, the application will be returned and re-evaluated when the information is available. It is the goal of the RLF to act on all completed application packages within 30 days.
