March 13, 2018 CDFA-BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series: Bridge Financing Solutions for Spurring Development
1:00 PM Eastern
Projects often spend months in the development process while efforts are made to secure long-term permanent financing. With long lag times between fund availability and project completion, many deals face financing gaps that can hinder a project. These finance gaps can be secured using short-term, flexible loans made through either public or private lenders, known as bridge lending. Unlike in the past, bridge lending presently is innova-tive with options for a variety of development opportunities. During this webinar, learn about these bridge lend-ers and where can you find them, as well as how effective bridge lending can become a dynamic part of a pro-ject's capital stack.
