CDFA Federal Financing Webinar Series
June 18, August 27, October 22, December 3
2:00 PM Eastern

-Overview

The CDFA Federal Financing Webinar Series is an exclusive, four-part online offering that will convene finance experts, federal agencies, and local practitioners to discuss the development finance programs offered by the federal government. The series will highlight the variety of ways federal grants, loans, guarantees, and credit enhancements can be used to attract greater investment in communities, with a particular emphasis on rural community facilities, manufacturing projects, environmentally resilient energy and water infrastructure, and funding for education and the arts.

When it comes to development finance, the federal government has many more programs available to help with economic development financing than most people realize. From infrastructure to housing projects, rural to urban communities, and prosperous to distressed areas, federal agencies support thousands of projects across the nation through financing, technical assistance, and building partnerships. Federal funding often attracts additional investments into projects and can bring many new partners to the table. CDFA is working hand-in-hand with many federal agencies as they expand the shape and scale of their involvement with communities, so we encourage you to participate in these webinars and bring project questions and ideas to our expert panelists.

CDFA Federal Financing Webinar Series

Thursday, June 18, 2020

Thu 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Federal Financing for Community Facilities
Several federal agencies provide financing solutions for community facilities, for both efficient and technologically advanced buildings as well as preserving historic structures. The resources that communities need for investing in police, fire, rescue, healthcare, and other facilities are vast, and often multiple sources of financing are needed to meet all the needs in a region. During this webinar, several federal agencies will discuss their programs for supporting local community facilities and how to coordinate financing with multiple partners.

  • Katie Kramer, Vice President, Council of Development Finance Agencies

Thursday, August 27, 2020

Thu 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Federal Financing for Manufacturing
Communities across the nation are looking for ways to revitalize manufacturing industries. Several branches of the federal government offer financing and technical assistance aimed at growing manufacturing. In this webinar, CDFA will convene financing experts from the Small Business Administration, Economic Development Administration, Department of Agriculture, and Export-Import Bank to discuss how their respective financing and grant programs can revitalize American manufacturing.

Thu 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Federal Financing for Resilient Energy and Water
Preparing the critical infrastructure for the future has never been more important. California’s electric grid, Seattle’s Alaskan Way Viaduct, and New York’s tunnels and subways are all examples of infrastructure that needs investment to become more resilient. In this webinar, learn how the Environmental Protection Agency, FEMA, and Department of Energy provide financing for disaster-resilient infrastructures such as transportation, energy, and communications systems.

Thu 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Federal Financing for Education and the Arts
Investment in education and the arts is often a critical economic development driver in communities, from urban centers, suburban enclaves, and rural cities. Yet many are struggling to identify the necessary capital to sustain programming or finance these cherished cultural institutions. During this webinar, federal agencies, including the Department of Education and the National Endowment for the Arts, will discuss programs available to support education and the arts.
