Who We Are
Nearly fifty years ago, the Vermont General Assembly established the Bond Bank to provide loans for local infrastructure projects following a period of facilities construction across the state when the ability to secure long-term debt financing was at risk.
The solution embodied in the Bond Bank was a state instrumentality with a mandate to “foster and promote by all reasonable means” access to long-term debt financing while, to the extent possible, reducing related costs to taxpayers and residents.
Over the ensuing years, the Bond Bank has financed billions of dollars in local investment by purchasing and “banking” the bonds and notes of governmental units.The Bond Bank is governed by a five-member Board of Directors with four appointed by the Governor and the State Treasurer serving as an ex-officio member.
|To assist Vermont's municipalities and other qualified public bodies in gaining access to affordable, innovative and appropriate financing to meet their capital needs.||To support Vermont's municipalities and other qualified bodies in making informed and knowledgeable financing decisions for present and future generations.|
