Letter of No-Prejudice /
Pre-Close Letter / Materials Acquisition Request
A Letter of No Prejudice (LONP) can be requested if you have an emergency situation related to public health, environmental impact, supply chain issues or an economic development opportunity that requires you to begin construction or obtain materials prior to: (1) submitting an application to PENNVEST, or (2) after the PENNVEST Board of Directors determines proposal funding. This request must be submitted before you have completed the Settlement process.
Please discuss LONP requirements (e.g. Davis-Bacon, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Architectural & Engineering (A/E), etc.) with a PENNVEST Project Specialist before submitting a LONP request form.
PENNVEST legislation prohibits funding projects that have long term financing in place or projects that have started construction prior to approval. In order to preserve your PENNVEST financing, you must receive written approval from PENNVEST before you begin construction.
The Letter of No-Prejudice is now an online form which is submitted directly through DocuSign to PENNVEST.
These forms may be downloaded and used as part of your submittal. The appropriate completed form will need to be uploaded as part of your submission.
