As Florida’s economy shows signs of improvement, local governments are reconsidering infrastructure and capital improvement projects that were put on hold a few years ago. Projects such as roads, libraries, courthouses, water and sewer improvements, and beach renourishment are back on the  table for discussion. To help local governments make these projects a reality, the Florida Local Government Finance Program (FLGFP) offers a flexible, low-interest, short- to medium-term loan program. It can even be used as a refinancing option. Governed by county officials, FLGFP it is one of the longest-running municipal commercial paper loan programs in the state, and has issued more than $2.4 billion dollars to local governments across Florida.
