This CLE/CPE course will brief real estate and finance counsel on alternative methods of financing real estate construction projects, specifically crowdfunding, tax credits, tax increment financing, and EB-5 financing.


The construction industry is in an upswing since the pandemic. When traditional financing is not readily available, savvy investors continue to seek opportunistic sources of financing to increase their return on investment and have greater flexibility, particularly in the mezzanine space of the capital stack.

Tax credits (NMTC, HTC, LIHTC), EB-5 financing, crowdfunding websites, and tax incremental financing can be a viable source of financing for urban redevelopment projects. Each offer an alternative source of mezzanine financing that can fill the construction-lending gap left by banks and traditional lenders and several function in combination with one another on a single project.

Listen as our authoritative real estate finance and securities attorneys brief you on these alternative financing tools available for construction financing, including tax credit funds, tax increment financing, EB-5 financing, and crowdfunding.
