PRIVATE ACTIVITY PROGRAMS
California Statewide Communities Development Authority (CSCDA) has built a successful track record of financing high quality public benefit projects. CSCDA has issued more than $38 billion for the construction, equipping, rehabilitation, or modernization of 1,829 local, community approved projects since 1988.
CSCDA offers the following Private Activity Programs:
Qualified nonprofit organizations can access low-cost, tax-exempt bonds to finance or refinance the acquisition, construction, installation, expansion or rehabilitation of land, buildings, and equipment. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization can finance projects at a lower interest rate than conventional financing because the interest paid to bondholders is exempt from federal (and in some instances state) income taxes.
For-profit and nonprofit developers can access tax-exempt bonds for the financing of low-income multifamily and senior housing projects. The Bonds may be used to finance or refinance the acquisition and rehabilitation of an existing project or for the construction of a new project, provided the developer agrees to set aside all, or a portion, of the units in a project for individuals and families of very low, low or moderate income.
Eligible manufacturers can access cost-effective, tax-exempt bond proceeds to acquire, construct or rehabilitate manufacturing facilities that promote job creation and retention. Bond proceeds may also be used for the acquisition of new equipment.
This program offers companies seeking cost-effective, tax-exempt capital to finance the acquisition and rehabilitation, construction of, or the acquisition of new equipment for solid waste and exempt facilities.
This program offers public and private entities taxable bonds for projects that provide public benefit and economic development. Longer term taxable bonds can often provide cost savings and other efficiencies.
