“If you can think of the project through a different lens, there is often a way you can leverage a non-traditional tool to fit the project you’re working on.” –Joe Agostinelli
The cost of materials and goods for projects is a topic we are all too familiar with right now. It often seems that incentive support is the only way to make some of our deals economically feasible. How do we creatively leverage programs to make every dollar and cent count?
On this episode, Faye Davis talks with Joe Agostinelli of the Grand Rapids Area Revitalization Task Force on creative deal structuring. Joe let’s us in on insights of looking at common tools we know about differently and how that is the key to being able to layer financial tools.We dive into the uniqueness of the Michigan Brownfield Redevelopment Financing Act compared to other states and how reimbursements play a role.
Joe can count on one hand the amount of no votes he has received from local government officials on project tools. He shares his key to success and how investing time on the front end is never a waste. Tune in today to this wisdom packed episode!
