The New Mexico Finance Authority’s Public Project Revolving Fund (PPRF) funds infrastructure and capital equipment projects with low-cost and low-interest rate loans.  The key characteristics of the PPRF is that all participating borrowers, regardless of their credit worthiness, receive ‘AAA’ insured interest rates; among the lowest interest rates available in the market. 

The PPRF is used to assist a wide range of governmental entities in accessing the capital markets at an all-in cost that is highly competitive and usually more competitive than other financing alternatives available to public entities. NMFA is an AAA / Aa1 credit (Agency Reports) whose bonds are highly sought by investors allowing NMFA to issue bonds in the capital markets at very attractive rates. NMFA passes the pricing benefits it receives in the public capital markets on to New Mexico communities in the form of loans. NMFA charges a flat fee of 1.5%, capped at $75,000, on loans that it makes from the PPRF.
