0965 Industrial Dvlmt Financing Advisory Comm
Program Descriptions


The core program area is the IDB Program, under which CIDFAC, as required by state law, serves as the mandatory approval agency for local IDB issuers. Once potential borrowers (manufacturers and processing companies) apply through their local government agency for low cost tax-exempt financing, CIDFAC carefully reviews the public benefits generated by the proposed project, particularly those benefits associated with job creation, and determines whether these benefits will significantly outweigh any detrimental public effects. Eligible capital expenditures include the acquisition of land, building construction, building renovation, and the purchase of machinery and equipment. Bond proceeds also can be used to cover the cost of architects, engineers, attorneys, permits, and the cost of bond issuance. The local issuer can be a city, county, economic development authority, redevelopment agency, or a joint power authority.
