Large cities and rural communities are examining new ways to finance these complex large-scale projects by working with the private sector to raise capital for development and maintenance costs. These deals are often multilayered deals with numerous sources of capital.

The Next Wave: Assembling Capital for Communications & Social Infrastructure Projects
Governments, large and small, rural and urban, understand the importance of high-quality facilities. This social infrastructure often serves as a series of anchor institutions that can be used to widen access to broadband and other means of communication. Maintenance and updates to these sometimes historical structures can often be financially challenging, particularly when governments are risk-averse or unable to identify enough rate payers to justify investment. In the last installment of the CDFA – Frost Brown Todd Infrastructure Webcast series, experts will discuss new deals from across the U.S. with creative financing solutions to tackle the issue of social infrastructure and communications maintenance and updates.
