Approximately $2.4 billion in Midwestern Disaster Area (MDA) bonding capacity is now available to fund projects in 78 Iowa counties, regardless of whether your specific business suffered damage.  A wide range of projects qualify for MDA bonds, which may be used, among other things, for the cost: 

•    of multifamily rental property for low and moderate income individuals;
•    to acquire, repair, replace or construct nonresidential real property and fixed improvements (including, for example, manufacturing facilities, retail businesses, shopping centers, auto dealerships, restaurants, office buildings, warehouse/storage facilities, medical buildings, commercial development, and agricultural facilities/improvements); and
•    to repair or reconstruct public utility property damaged in disasters.

We have assembled a team of experienced professionals to provide you with a detailed discussion of the actual steps in the bond financing process, and to assist you in actually completing those steps, from application to funding.  Topics will include:   

•    An overview of MDA Bonds.
•    How the application process works.
•    How to determine whether your project is a viable candidate for MDA Bonds.
•    Underwriting and financial analysis for various project/borrower profiles.
•    Question and Answer Period.
