CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series: Financing Rural Healthcare

Access to healthcare services is critical for good health in communities across the country, yet rural communities face a variety of barriers when it comes to obtaining their healthcare needs. As rural communities face population decline, aging infrastructure, and increasing poverty rates, new and improved healthcare infrastructure is crucial for public health and community development. Although rural healthcare facilities are challenging to finance, there are a variety of capital and investment sources for healthcare infrastructure projects available. During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series, we discussed financing programs that support healthcare development and showcase successful projects that have increased access to healthcare for rural communities.
