The 2013 CDFA National Development Finance Summit will give attendees an in-depth look at development finance in the United States. This special program will provide opportunities for attendees to engage in a diverse cross-section of development finance topics, federal engagements, and legislative activities. This year’s National Summit will examine the role of the federal government in supporting job creation and business investment and bring together the top federal leaders to address the challenges facing our nation’s economy. The National Summit will also include the opportunity for attendees to participate in CDFA’s Capitol Hill Day as we deliver the development finance message to Congress. Designed to educate both novices and seasoned development finance professionals alike, the 2013 National Development Finance Summit will touch on over 25 different financing concepts, tools, programs, strategies, and solutions to the financing opportunities facing our communities. Finally, this year’s National Summit will feature CDFA’s highly acclaimed Intro Public-Private Partnership (P3) Finance Course as a pre-Summit training option and a new Pre-Summit Workshop focused on the basics of financing local food systems in communities.
