Financing Historic Theater Redevelopment
May 16, 2017 @ 1:00 PM Eastern

Historic theaters are key structures for creating a sense of place and often have a rich history of being a community's economic driver. For theaters that have fallen into disrepair, changing their fate requires vision, planning, and a commitment to financing. During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series, CDFA has partnered with Heritage Ohio to explore the wealth of financing tools available to redevelop historic theaters, including 501(c)(3) bonds, TIF, tax credits, and other creative programs. Join us for this special discussion as we highlight success stories from historic theaters across the U.S.
