What Happens After Submission
The MDOD staff will review your application for completeness and return it to you for corrections if required.
The loan application is submitted to the lender for review to see if the loan can be approved on its own merit. If the lender approves you, they will determine your interest rate and you can close the loan with the lender at the most convenient branch office (or by mail). Most loans approved on their own merit will receive a preferred/discounted interest rate because the loan application was received through the ATLP process. If the lender declines your application, the ATLP will submit your request to the ATLP Board of Directors for further evaluation and consideration for a loan guarantee.
Lender Decline & Board Review
After a bank decline, the ATLP will further process the application and send it to the ATLP Board of Directors for additional review and consideration for a loan guarantee through the ATLP. The ATLP will notify you of its decision by phone and in writing. If you qualify for a loan guarantee, ATLP staff will work with you and the lender to coordinate the AT loan. You can close the loan with the lender at the most convenient branch office.
If the ATLP Board declines your loan guarantee, you have a right to appeal the ATLP Board decision. Not all loans are approved. You must have a good likelihood of repaying a loan to be approved for a loan guarantee. If you feel the decision of the Board is incorrect and you wish to make an appeal for reconsideration, you may make an appeal in writing or appropriate alternative format, and provide additional documentation that addresses the stated reasons for denial. This appeal should be forwarded to the address listed below: The ATLP Board will then consider the new information; provide you an opportunity to be heard; and inform you of the decision on the appeal. The decision of the ATLP Board will then be final.
Appeal documentation should be sent to:
Assistive Technology Loan Program (ATLP)
