This Authority is included under the umbrella organization "Finance and Development Commission." The Allegheny County Hospital Development Authority (the "ACHDA") was established under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania pursuant to the Municipality Authorities Act of 1945, approved May 2, 1945, P.L. 382, as amended (the "Municipality Authorities Act"). Formation of the ACHDA was approved by the Allegheny County Board of Commissioners on 5/27/71 and its Articles of Incorporation were issued by the Commonwealth on 6/17/71. The ACHDA was created and is authorized by law to acquire, hold, construct, finance, improve, maintain, operate, own and lease, as lessee or lessor, health centers (including but not limited to, personal care facilities and nursing homes), hospitals and facilities devoted to hospital purposes. Financing is provided by the Authority through the issuance of tax-exempt bonds. The rate and term of financing are negotiated. The interest income on the bonds may be exempt from federal and Commonwealth income taxes which results in a reduced rate to the borrower. The borrower must comply with applicable requirements of the Code and Regulations.
