Innovations in Local Infrastructure Finance

This report identifies potential innovations in finance that could be considered for use by local governments in Champaign County. Innovation in public finance is a necessary step for two reasons. First, current finance approaches are unable to secure the increasing amounts of capital needed to meet the demand for infrastructure. Second, long-term solutions are needed to address the problems that have accumulated because of existing funding gaps. The report was requested by RPC member agencies and was published in August 2010.
