PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Rhode Island Health and Educational Building Corporation (RIHEBC) announced the issuance of $3.7 million in Educational Institution Revenue Bonds on behalf of Mount Saint Charles Academy.

The tax-exempt bonds closed on May 1, 2019 and will be used to design, construct, and furnish a 19,000 square foot residence hall on the Academy’s campus in Woonsocket.

“With the construction of this residence hall, Mount Saint Charles is going back in its history to move into the future.  We’re again attracting students from a wider geographical area. Student housing is part of the equation and part of our future. It’s a bright future fueled by innovative new programs” said the Academy’s President Alan Tenreiro.

Mr. Tenreiro also commended RIHEBC saying that “the leadership and team at RIHEBC worked extremely hard for Mount as a borrower, ensuring the lowest possible rate for our construction project.  The expert process was user friendly from the very beginning.”
