Application Information


Application for Bond Issue

The following are general factors the HFA and the County want to find for a successful application:

  • The proposal is for a health facility needed in the community
  • The project size is in excess of $5,000,000, as the cost of issuing debt does not make it cost-effective to fund smaller projects
  • The organization making the proposal has a very strong financial history, credit rating, and financial statements
  • The proposing organization is established in Broward County
  • The application is complete and contains all requested documentation
  • The applicant provides a resolution or other document authorizing application to HFA for bond financing, with an express reference to a “not to exceed” dollar amount
  • The proposing organization provides a list of affiliated entities, if any, significantly involved in the project
