Indiana bond bank is a self-supporting quasi-government entity, established in 1984 by the General Assembly. It operates as a financing conduit. It provides assistance to local government to obtain funds for their projects at low costs. The bank buys bonds from communities and pools them and further issues them in the open market. This enables communities to obtain savings by way of ‘economy of scale’ and sharing of fixed costs.
