  • Notice of Availability Private Activity Bonds: Volume Cap Reservation for 2016
    News Date: 01-March-2016  About Private Activity Bonds and Volume Cap:

    Private Activity Bonds (PAB's) are tax-exempt bonds issued by public entities to provide
    below-market financing for certain types of private projects that serve a public purpose, as
    specified by Federal tax law. Federal tax law also imposes a number of other restrictions
    and requirements on the issuance of Private Activity Bonds, among which is a “volume
    cap” at the state level that limits the amount of PABs that can be issued each year (Guam is
    treated as a state for this purpose). Each state receives an annual PAB volume cap
    allocation, calculated according to a formula established by federal tax law. In addition,
    federal law allows unused volume cap to be carried forward for future use; carry forward
    amounts expire after three years.

    The total available volume cap for Private Activity Bonds in Guam, inclusive of unused
    volume cap carried forward, is $245,778,563.00. The available carry forward volume cap
    is allocated among the permitted types of bonds as follows:
    Qualified Mortgage Bonds or Mortgage Credit Certificates - $51,316,935
    Solid Waste Disposal Facilities - $42,823,670
    Qualified Residential Rental Projects - $ 84,459,907
    Facilities for the Local Furnishing of Electric Energy or Gas - $22,014,855
    Qualified Hazard Waste Facilities - $23,148,341
    Qualified Enterprise Zone Facility Bonds - $ 22,014,855
     
    The Guam Economic Development Authority (GEDA) pursuant to Section 146 of the
    Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and GEDA's authority to issue project revenue bonds
    pursuant to Chapter 64 of Title 12 of the Guam Code Annotated, is issuing this Notice of
    Availability of Private Activity Bonds allocation. Applications will be made available at
    GEDA’s offices located at the 590 South Marine Corps Drive, Suite 511, Tamuning, Guam
    96913. The submission deadline for all applicants to be considered for available volume
    cap is Tuesday, May 31, 2016. All allocations for private activity bonds are issued on a
    competitive basis. For more information, please contact Mrs. Tina Garcia, Public Finance
    Manager at (671) 647-4332 or e-mail tina.garcia@investguam.com.
