The Private Activity Bond Committee helps facilitate the construction of critical facilities for the public benefit in communities throughout Oregon. Certain types of privately owned facilities such as airports, boat docks, affordable housing, or other economic development projects, provide significant benefits to the communities they serve. When the construction of a private facility would provide important public benefits, the project can often be financed using tax-exempt bonds. Doing so reduces financing costs and can play an important role in making such projects possible.
Federal tax law limits the amount of tax-exempt debt that can be used for these purposes in each state. The Private Activity Bond Committee is responsible for examining proposals and determining which projects most deserve this federal assistance.
