QCT_finance_477Since 2000, the Port Authority has issued more than $540 million in revenue bonds to fund a wide variety of economic projects in the City and Hamilton County.

The Port Authority’s Public Finance program provides innovative financing options tailored to the distinct needs of a project and its development entity.  With strong public finance and policy practice, the Port Authority has broad development-related powers under state law, including the ability to issue tax-exempt bonds.

The Port Authority has demonstrated ability to finance and manage large public projects.
The Public Finance team at the Port Authority can serve as the central point of contact, investigating and procuring local, state and federal business-retention and expansion incentives, and has access to local, state and federal grant funds. As a quasi-public entity, we fill a needed role in funding significant real estate, community redevelopment and transportation infrastructure projects, and, at the same time, addressing all fiscal and public policy considerations.

Partners and Resources: We continue our outreach to regional municipalities and developers to introduce the financing tools available to the Port Authority, and to discuss how we can partner to help with development projects.
