Westchester Approves $340 Million Bonding×600-1.jpg

Westchester County’s Local Development Corporation (LDC), which assists Westchester not-for-profit organizations in securing tax-exempt bond financing benefits, has approved more than $340 million in bond financing for two major not-for-profits.

At its August 20th meeting, the LDC unanimously approved $300 million in bond financing for Westchester County Healthcare Corporation, the public authority responsible for governing the Westchester Medical Center. The bond will be used to refinance outstanding debt of the Medical Center with $39 million to fund capital projects and new equipment at the Valhalla campus.

The LDC also approved $40 million in bond financing for Sarah Lawrence College and $546,000 in mortgage recording tax exemption. The proceeds will be used to refund $5 million in bonds issued to the College by the LDC in 2016; reduce the College’s reliance on a $15 million line of credit; provide $8.5 million to fund potential financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic and $10 million for new initiatives and existing functions at the College.

“As we begin to reemerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical that that we continue to support our not-for-profit sector. The Westchester Medical Center and Sarah Lawrence College play an important role in the health and vitality of Westchester County’s economy,” said Westchester County Executive George Latimer.

“The Board of the Local Development Corporation is pleased to approve bond financing to these two fine institutions that contribute so much to the high quality of life we enjoy in Westchester County,” said LDC Chair Joan McDonald.
