Transportation Financing and Value Capture Webinar: 2/27

Posted on: February 15th, 2019 by Carrie Kissel

Do you have a transportation infrastructure project in search of a financing source?  Are you working with local partners to develop a pipeline of shovel-ready projects?  Do you need a stronger understanding of existing financing tools in order to shape infrastructure projects that can compete and put together successful public-private partnerships?  Are you interested in strategies agencies can use to capitalize on the value created by transportation investments and recover a portion of the resulting increased land value?  Join the NADO Research Foundation for a webinar presentation by staff of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Build America Bureau and Value Capture Innovation team on February 27 from 1:00-2:00 pm ET.  Our speakers will provide an overview of the Department’s various infrastructure financing programs—including BUILD Grants, INFRA Grants, Private Equity Bonds, TIFIA, and more—sharing information about how the different financing mechanisms work, the program requirements, project evaluation criteria, considerations for rural applicants, and timing of upcoming opportunities.  Additionally, they will highlight value capture approaches, benefits, and best practices.  Come with your questions about these programs and initiatives and walk away with some next steps for applying and tips for putting the concepts into action!
