(2) The Applicants demonstrates the ability to repay the loan; and
(3) The Applicant demonstrates that use of loan funds will be strictly for supporting the operations and financing of the Charter School consistent with the intent of the charter pursuant to Education Code Section 47605.
(b) In addition, the Authority may consider the following criteria as it relates to the Application:
(1) Soundness of the Charter School's business plan, and the expertise of key management at the Charter School;
(2) Availability to the Charter School of other sources of funds;
(3) Impact of receipt of Program funds received on the Charter School's receipt of other private and public financing;
(4) Compliance with other Programs under the Authority, if the Charter School or its affiliate received an award under another Program;
(5) Compliance with repayment of all prior Program loan(s), if the Charter School or its affiliate received all previous Program loan(s); and

(1) Among New Charter Schools, if applicable, based on highest FRPM across Regions ensuring equal representation to the extent feasible among Regions pursuant to Section 10170.17(q)-(t);
(2) Among existing Charter Schools based on highest FRPM across Regions ensuring equal representation to the extent feasible among Regions pursuant to Section 10170.17(q)-(t).
