Main page content

CDT’s Charter School Lending Program provides long-term facility financing for K – 12 charter schools that are committed to nurturing the limitless potential of their students.

CDT has provided financing of over $52 million for charter school facilities in the communities in which CDT has made an enduring commitment.

Charter school loan terms are typically up to 20 years with amortization periods of up to 30 years and a maximum loan amount of $15 million. CDT lends directly to charter schools and to developers that provide a long-term facility rental option to schools.
