Vibrant walkable urban communities are in high demand across the country. Real estate developers and investors, as well as local elected officials, are looking for innovative approaches to finance these complex projects. Dozens of federal programs are designed to help, and a new resource from LOCUS provides an overview of all of those programs in one convenient place.
The 2019 Federal Financing Toolkit has been updated and expanded to include federal financing opportunities that are designed to help real estate developers and investors, as well as local elected officials, achieve their development goals.
The toolkit provides information on programs at numerous federal agencies designed to support new projects related to brownfields, green building and sustainability, healthy communities, housing, transportation, and rural development. The toolkit includes special sections on Community Development Block Grants and Opportunity Zones, as well as case studies for some of the most dynamic funding opportunities.
