Variety is the Spice of Life: Options for Successful Capital Financing Strategies
Funding the construction of infrastructure, facilities, and other assets is not easy and at times, governments need to consider creative options to provide necessary solutions. Beyond debt financing, pay-as-you-go, and grant funding, finance officers have used a variety of ways to pay for their capital projects including use of private funds, interfund borrowing, microfinancing, and more. However, not all ideas are good ones. In this session, speakers will provide attendees with considerations for different funding options, the pros and cons of each, and how to determine what works best for your government.
