Simon Bluestone was part of a team presenting at Brownfields 2019 in Los Angeles
The Enhanced Infrastructure Financing District (EIFD) law provides broad authority and flexibility for local agencies to use tax increment to finance a wide variety of projects, including Brownfield redevelopment. This panel will present an overview of EIFDs, discuss the enhancements and provide an opportunity for interactive Q&A. The applicability of similar tools at a national level will also be discussed. Governor Newsom's goal of increasing housing production 7-fold over what was built in the past 7 years will require massive resources and new partnerships. This panel will help attendees understand EIFDs and envision a path forward.
