Private Activity Bonds (PABs) are a phenomenally versatile development tool that can be used to finance a broad spectrum of projects. Projects eligible for PAB financing include everything from traditional public infrastructure like airports, sewage facilities, and highways to multifamily housing projects and housing for veterans. PABs can also be used to support qualified projects benefitting 501(c)(3) organizations and capital improvements for manufacturers.
