DALLAS, February 20, 2013 – Civitas Capital Group today announced that Chief Executive Officer Daniel J. Healy will speak at the 2013 Public Private Partnership Conference (P3C) in Dallas, Texas, on Friday, February 22. The session, titled EB-5 Visa Funding for Your Next Project Development, will feature a panel of experts discussing EB-5 program benefits and recently financed projects.

“Through the City of Dallas Regional Center, a public private partnership between Civitas Capital Group and the City of Dallas, we have invested more than $170 million in our community and created nearly 3,000 jobs for area residents,” Healy said. “By leveraging investor interest and EB-5 funding, our projects have ranged from the development of affordable assisted living facilities to the renovation of a 100-year-old hotel. This unique form of financing can provide enormous benefits for a city’s economic landscape, and I look forward to sharing our insight and experience with conference attendees.”

The P3C Conference will take place on February 21 and 22, and will offer in-depth, focused discussions on public private partnerships trends, practical financing techniques and ways that governments are working together to develop economically vibrant communities.
