Capital Funding Group (CFG) secured a $20 million Bridge-to-HUD loan for the refinancing of a 125-bed skilled nursing facility located in Maryland. The transaction was finalized on March 29, 2024.

“We’re excited to share the closing of this deal, as it rounded out a strong first quarter of executing financing on behalf of our clients across the country,” said Tim Eberhardt, CFG Bank Chief Lending Officer, Bridge and HUD Loans. “We work closely with our clients to understand their business goals. We then streamline the entire HUD process from the initial application to the final closing, leaving no step overlooked, and after the loan is executed, we continue servicing the loan, for the life of the loan. We look forward to continuing this year’s momentum.”

This financing adds to CFG’s recent investments, including the closure of a $65 million bridge loan supporting the refinancing of a nine-facility senior living portfolio in Ohio. The portfolio consists of independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing facilities and totaled 709 beds, closed on March 26, 2024, for a nationally recognized borrower.


“This deal encapsulates our bullish position on the full continuum of care,” Eberhardt said. “With our one-stop-shop, comprehensive loan offerings and entrepreneurial approach to lending, our team is able efficiently execute deals of all sizes and complexities, including multi-facility deals like this one, to help our clients grow their business.”
