LISC's 2014 Charter School Facility Finance Landscape is a comprehensive source for information on how charter schools fund real estate projects. This is the fourth report in a series of Landscape studies since 2005. It provides an overview of current financing options from foundations and nonprofit financing organizations, as well as a detailed description of the tax-exempt bond market for charter schools. It also details federal and state policies that support charter school facilities, including tax credit programs, credit enhancement and loan programs and conduit issuer activity. This latest study underlines the disparity among states in facilitating access to affordable capital, explaining how the private and nonprofit sectors are helping bridge gaps with billions of dollars in funding.
