Presentation Overview:

Infrastructure & Revitalization Finance Realities In the wake of an economic downturn, many communities are left with sites, projects, districts, or entire urban cores requiring revitalization and new infrastructure. As a solution to these challenges, tools such as Special Assessment Districts, Transit Oriented Development and Brownfield Remediation have emerged as strategies to concentrate development opportunities into targeted locations. Within this session, presenters will discuss their experiences using these powerful finance mechanisms to catalyze public improvements that spur private investment. 

Conference Overview:

Join CDFA and CALED for the California Financing Roundtable Conference on October 9, 2014 as we focus on "Financing Economic Development: Best Practices & Steadfast Programs." This one-day event will feature a number of economic development finance experts and leaders from around the state discussing development finance tools, resources, authorities, and approaches and how these methods can move California’s economy forward. Topics to be discussed include bonds, public-private partnerships, loan funds, innovation capital, tax credits, EB-5 and much more. CDFA is excited to partner with CALED to host this specialized initiative for the economic development and project finance professionals in the state.
