On July 17, 2009, the Puget Sound Regional Council hosted a Regional American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Coordination meeting.  At this meeting, there was a presentation on Bond Financing, Loan Guarantees, and Tax Credits plus a discussion on monetizing energy efficiency savings. 

In case you missed this meeting, I want you to be aware of a couple of resources.

First, on July 31, 2009, there is a workshop regarding Recovery Act Finance Opportunities in Washington.  The workshop will be hosted by the Washington Department of Commerce (formerly the Department of Community Trade and Economic Development or CTED) and held in Bellevue, and you can register here.

Second, our tax group has issued an informative, yet concise, alert regarding the grant in lieu of the production tax credit (available here).
