Opportunity for Cities to Issue First Public Environmental Impact Bonds

Interested in Environmental Impact Bonds (EIB)? Quantified Ventures and Neighborly are looking for Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for two cities to be the first to issue publicly marketed EIBs this fall. Supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, Neighborly and Quantified Ventures will offer their services pro bono to help the selected cities structure, market, and underwrite the EIBs. These bonds will be used to finance resilience projects such as green roofs, urban tree canopies, green streets and alleyways, hurricane preparedness, affordable housing, and microgrids in municipalities. Visit Neighborly’s website to learn more about the project and access the RFP packet. RFPs are due September 15.
