5th Annual Conference on Community Development &Financing

Monday, March 27, 2017

William S. Richardson School of Law

The Purpose of the Conference

As the demand for funding developments (i.e. capital improvement and energy projects) increases, traditional methods of capitalizing projects become increasingly inadequate. There are alternatives. By creatively structuring projects, communities, nonprofit organizations and businesses (nonprofit and for-profit) are able to access capital. Capital requires organizational capability and capacity that some entities already have. It sets a goal post for others that can be met by strategically planning their approaches for the next several years.

This Conference will provide information and a road map for communities, nonprofit organizations and businesses to improve their ability to access funding sources including programs like the federal New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), programs run by the State of Hawaii, and private foundations that have been highly successful in Hawaii and in other parts of the county.

This Conference is about building organizational capabilities so that more communities, nonprofit organizations, and businesses are able to secure funding needed to construct projects, create jobs, and provide needed services and products to the State of Hawaii.
