The Challenge of the 21st Century for Correctional Facilities Today's Municipal Financing managers are faced with a diverse array of challenges. Across the nation, public officials at the local, county and state levels of government are searching for new resources to expand tight operating budgets to meet the immediate and long-term needs of our communities. Reductions in federal and state aid are creating a new reality for towns, cities, counties, school districts, hospitals, and many other public authorities. This economic environment calls for tough decisions, greater self-reliance, and innovative approaches. The demand for alternative financing methods is growing along with the need for equipment and facilities.

Lease Purchase financing is one of the most successful methods developed in recent years to address immediate needs for capital improvements and acquisitions to provide for essential services while improving the management of cash flow. The tax-exempt feature of Lease Purchase financing has proven to be attractive to both Lessees and investors.
