Public/Municipal financing generally refers to the use of governmental agencies and their borrowing/lending powers to issue their bonds for the purpose of raising funds for certain projects. The funds are raised immediately, and the bonds, which are generally sold to investors or the public, are paid off over a specified period of time at a certain rate.
