Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Minority, veteran, female and disability loans.
(a) In the making of loans for minority, veteran, female or disability
small businesses, as defined below, the Department is authorized to employ
different criteria in lieu of the general provisions of subsections (b),
(d), (e), (f), (h), and (i) of Section 9-4.
Minority, veteran, female or disability small businesses, for the purpose of this
Section, shall be defined as small businesses that are, in the Department's
judgment, at least 51% owned and managed by one or more persons who are
minority or female or who have a disability or who are veterans.
(b) Loans made pursuant to this Section:
(1) Shall not exceed $400,000 or 50% of the business
project costs unless the Director of the Department determines that a waiver of these limits is required to meet the purposes of this Act.
(2) Shall only be made if, in the Department's
judgment, the number of jobs to be created or retained is reasonable in relation to the loan funds requested.
(3) Shall be protected by security. Financial
assistance may be secured by first, second or subordinate mortgage positions on real or personal property, by royalty payments, by personal notes or guarantees, or by any other security satisfactory to the Department to secure repayment. Security valuation requirements, as determined by the Department, for the purposes of this Section, may be less than required for similar loans not covered by this Section, provided the applicants demonstrate adequate business experience, entrepreneurial training or combination thereof, as determined by the Department.
(4) Shall be in such principal amount and form and
contain such terms and provisions with respect to security, insurance, reporting, delinquency charges, default remedies, and other matters as the Department shall determine appropriate to protect the public interest and consistent with the purposes of this Section. The terms and provisions may be less than required for similar loans not covered by this Section.
