Why PFA

     

    Cost Effective

    PFA is authorized to issue bonds in all 50 states providing economies of scale for multi-jurisdictional projects. Additionally, the use of tax-exempt bonds to finance a project significantly reduces the borrower’s costs in the form of a lower interest rate.

    Resource

    PFA works directly with cities and counties to accelerate economic development with financing programs, including those available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

    Accountable and Transparent

    PFA’s governance structure and local government oversight and approval requirement for each financing ensure accountability and transparency.

    Responsive

    PFA works effectively and efficiently with each borrower’s finance team to satisfy the requirements of the government approval process, including local TEFRA approval and securing volume cap (if applicable).

    Financial Access

    PFA increases access to the municipal bond market by providing technical assistance to local governments that may otherwise be unable to issue conduit bonds due to limited resources.

    Experience

    PFA is operated by program management staff with more than 20 years of experience in tax-exempt private activity and municipal finance, including post-issuance compliance requirements.

    Flexible

    PFA does not have established lists of preferred finance professionals and will consider all requests to work with pre-assembled finance teams.

    Opportunity

    PFA, its Sponsors and Founding Members engage in marketing and awareness activities to local businesses throughout the country creating additional opportunities for finance professionals to bring financings to the market.
