Creative financing is used when conventional bank loans doesn’t work, or can’t meet the total funding requirements.  Financing instruments are available through public and not-for-profit organizations to fill a financing gap, and typically come in the form of:  low interest loans, tax benefits. expense reimbursement, and grants.

Putting together a financing package is like putting together a puzzle.  Each piece should fit into the whole picture to optimize the project’s success.  The goal is to provide financing that is accessible (eligible uses), affordable (at low-cost), timely (when needed), and with minimal restrictions (flexible terms).  Attached are two documents that list Creative Financing Tools offered through the City and others.
