Donald T. Erwin Community Health Center – New Orleans, LA
Nolan Sheehan Patten represented a subsidiary Community Development Entity (CDE) of Capital Link, Inc. in this twinned New Markets Tax Credit and Federal Historic Tax Credit transaction. The structure leveraged the proceeds of grants from the Kresge Foundation and the Louisiana Primary Care Association, a loan from the State of Louisiana’s Office of Community Development, and equity from First NBC Bank through the CDE to provide over $7,000,000 in qualified low income community investment loans to an affiliate of the St. Thomas Community Health Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. St. Thomas used these funds to acquire, rehabilitate and retrofit a well-known historic building in downtown New Orleans into the Donald T. Erwin Community Health Center, an urban health center primarily serving uninsured and underrepresented low-income populations.
