Capital Financing 101 for Behavioral Health Agencies

January 28, 1 PM EST

FREE

As Behavioral Health agencies seek to expand and integrate their services to meet the demands of their community, their leadership are often frustrated in terms of how or where to source capital to achieve their goals. Grants are limited at best, banks won’t lend enough (if at all), and private fundraising is time consuming, typically resulting in years-long delays in expanding community services.

This presentation will review capital options available for agency leadership, including innovative alternatives to traditional mortgage or construction lending. Perhaps most importantly, it will discuss how to prepare your agency for using third-party financing, review prudent use of leverage, the role of the Board when considering capital sourcing, and options available to expedite the process. Specific topics will include:

Planning and Evaluation
  • Needs assessment: patient/visit growth assumptions
  • Service expansion: Models of delivery, staffing optimization
  • Revenue assumptions: associated revenues
  • Cost analysis: staffing and other requirements
Financing Options: Pros and Cons
  • Grants/fundraising
  • Leverage: prudent usage and tips for sourcing
  • Non-traditional financing options
  • Alternative expansion models: phased expansion, alternative delivery systems
