Please click here to view this Corner Briefing, which highlights public financing tools that can work together to get projects moving in the post-redevelopment era.
Public finance tools are more important than ever with new climate change demands, affordable housing needs and the dissolution of redevelopment agencies. Newer public financing mechanisms such as Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts, which provide project capital, can be coupled with traditional funding mechanisms such as Community Facilities Districts, which can prime the pump and fund various services. These financing mechanisms can be much more powerful together than they are apart.
Holland & Knight helps developers and local governments tailor public finance tools to create valuable finance solutions. Please contact Robert Haight, Douglas Praw, Nicholas Targ or Dan Golub for additional background or assistance.
