The guide examines four basic financing methods: self-financing, direct borrowing, alternative-financing techniques and community-based financing. To aid users, the guide is divided into sections that focus on building or operation types:

  • commercial, manufacturing and industrial
  • multi-family housing
  • all types of buildings
  • community-based financing                                       

Each financing source is profiled in terms of eligibility, amount limits and other features. Contactsfor additional information about the financing option are also listed as well as web sites, if available.
