The Cash Collateral Support (CCS) program provides a cash deposit as additional collateral for a business loan when the business cannot meet the lender’s collateral requirements.

The maximum loan size allowed is $10 million and the business borrower must have less than 750 employees. The program is capped at deposits of 25 percent of the loan amount or $250,000 (whichever is less).
