Our Innovative Financing Yields Results
In order to meet the needs of each unique client, BWC takes an innovative approach known as Structured Multi-Layered Financing, which:

  • Leverages the power of public-private partnerships using financial products and incentives, tax credits and programs available from local, state and/or federal government.
  • Incorporates traditional financial institutions willing to work in the community development space to deliver attractive financing options.
  • Accesses the constantly changing landscape of financial tools available for community development to leverage every dollar for which they qualify for a full array of investment options.
  • Brings the resources of the investment community and government together to layer and structure the appropriate financing vehicles and package them to fully meet the needs of sustainable communities.

The Tools
Financial tools for sustainable economic development are created to stretch limited resources available for projects that can have a transformative impact on a community.
