The Credit Enhancement Program is a means by which the Oklahoma Finance Authority provides guarantees for small companies, manufacturing facilities and communities in need of funds for expansion projects and infrastructure loans. "Credit Enhanced" financing carry a financial guarantee of the Credit Enhancement Reserve Fund (CERF). The fund assumes part or all of the risk of repayment of the credit enhanced notes or bonds. The two basic forms of lending utilized by ODFA are conduit and credit-enhancement financing. The Authority utilizes conduit financing to provide borrowers with lower cost financing, due to the Authority's standing as a public trust, without creating risk for ODFA itself.
