Call for Presentations

Once again, the CDFA National Summit will be a forward-thinking event, focused on the current wave of cutting-edge deals, projects and programs in development finance. In 2017, the theme will focus on leveraging private-sector capital using a public-sector financing approach. The CDFA National Summit will explore deals, projects and programs that expand private-sector capital investment.

CDFA needs your help to source deals, projects and programs. Through May, CDFA will be accepting submissions for potential deals, projects and program presentations. Submissions must fit into at least one of the following broad categories:

CDFA is looking for diversity in the deals, projects and programs that present. Submissions must be focused on leveraging private-sector capital using a public-sector financing approach. CDFA will place an emphasis on bonds, tax increment, tax credits, access to capital funds, special assessment and early stage capital. Deals, projects or programs that include multiple funding sources are highly encouraged. Complex and innovative uses of financing to solve private sector market challenges is critical.

Submission deadline is May 12, 2017. Please read the submission requirements below.
