The State Treasurer's Office supports new or expanding businesses and farms by enabling eligible borrowers to receive low-interest rate loans through the Missouri Linked Deposit Program.
The goal of the program is to invest in Missouri-based companies and agricultural operations, leading to job creation, economic expansion and stronger communities. Under these programs, the State Treasurer's Office places State funds at a reduced interest rate with local financial institutions, thus allowing eligible borrowers to obtain low-interest loans from the same institution. Savings to the borrower are generally 25%-30% of their interest costs, and there are only a few administrative requirements for borrowers and their financial institution.
The State Treasurer's Office operates five main Linked Deposit Programs. The total allocation of the Linked Deposit Program is $720 million, with the individual program allocations for the most commonly used programs listed below.
