Bond Financing for Disaster Response
Tuesday, October 20, 2020 @ 1:00 PM Eastern

When significant portions of the economy are shut down due to a disaster, vital public infrastructure and essential facilities like manufacturing plants become uniquely valuable because they are key economic drivers. There are lessons to be learned from bond financing mechanisms being used to finance essential infrastructure and facilities in areas prone to hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters. The ability for manufacturers to rapidly scale-up the production of personal protective equipment, medical supplies, test kits, and ventilators during the pandemic has been well-documented, and Industrial Development Bonds are an option for financing such facilities. Similarly, TIF bond structures are an option for storage facilities that play a role in recovery. During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series, we will look at how bonds act as a resilient economic driver by financing the critical facilities and infrastructure that stabilize local economies during and after crises.

Many Americans have felt the shockwave of the hurricanes, wildfires, and flooding that continue to impact our country. There is an increased demand for greater reliability, safety, and resiliency of aging urban infrastructure systems. These systems must be continuously adapted and upgraded to efficiently support essential public services, urban development, and economic growth. During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series, we will analyze how to finance the built environment to mitigate disaster and protect human life.

During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series, we will explore how a myriad of development finance tools are being implemented strategically to support modernization projects and new construction of education facilities.
