The DFI team’s experience touches on a broad range of development finance tools that are designed to attract private investment into local community and economic development projects including:

  • targeted financing/incentive programs (Tax Increment Financing (TIF), Business Improvement Districts (BIDs))
  • tax credit financing (historic preservation, new markets, brown fields, low-income housing)
  • loan funds (revolving loan funds, microenterprise loans, and innovative debt and equity hybrid products)
  • secondary market and securitization programs (loan loss reserve funds)
  • equity (individual investors, foundations, community development venture capital)
  • federal grant programs (CDBG, HUD, EDA)
