PLIA has temporarily stopped accepting applications after March 2, 2020, so that we can better serve current program participants.
PLIA will schedule an intake meeting with applicants accepted into the program to discuss project goals.
PLIA will conduct a Preliminary Planning Assessment (PPA) at each accepted site to gather technical data and develop project cost estimates.
An applicant will receive a financial offer after completion of the PPA.
Upon accepting the offer, PLIA will provide technical oversight through the Petroleum Technical Assistance Program (PTAP).
Loan repayments begin thirty (30) days following the payment of the first invoice by PLIA, and can be made electronically or by mail.
