Community Benefit Agreements - Sparking Development
May 15, 2018 @ 1:00 PM Eastern

Development projects are often touted as being economic windfalls for communities where they are situated. However, low- and moderate-income communities are frequently left behind, and many benefits of economic development filter to higher income communities. In an effort to combat inequality and promote more equity in economic development, many developers have reshaped and elevated the role of community benefits agreements (CBAs). In a CBA, public and private sector participants determine how the benefits of the economic development will be shared among communities. But what do these CBAs actually look like in practice? What types of benefits are negotiated and how do they support making economic development more impactful on the communities that need it the most? During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series, hear from experts on how public entities can optimize CBAs to generate greater community buy-in for development projects, and more equitably distribute economic gains.

Housing Finance 201: Partnerships & the Capital Stack
June 19, 2018 @ 1:00 PM Eastern

Establishing partnerships and assembling a diverse capital stack are key components when financing housing developments. Projects in the housing sector rely on a varied stream of debt and equity often contributed by the numerous project partner’s financing or funding capacity. How can a development finance agency leverage its significant capacity to allocate and provide financing to support housing projects in their community? What types of partnerships should development finance agencies establish with key community institutions and how does this affect the diversity of the capital stack? During this installment of the CDFA//BNY Mellon Development Webcast Series, housing finance experts will explore how community institutions can provide the diversity in financing needed to see housing projects from inception to fruition and how development finance agencies can play a key role in this process.
