We Provide Financing and More

The Minnesota Higher Education Facilities Authority (the “Authority”) assists private nonprofit colleges and universities in Minnesota to finance or refinance their capital needs. The Authority accomplishes its mission by the issuance of tax-exempt or taxable bonds or notes and lending the proceeds to the school.

The Authority provides post-sale assistance to borrower schools helping them to manage their financing obligations, comply with regulatory and legal compliance requirements, monitor credit markets for refunding opportunities, and assist in answering any questions which arise during the life of the financing. The Authority actively works to have laws and regulations amended or revised to empower the Authority to provide such assistance.
