The State of New Jersey funds improvements to its infrastructure through the issuance of bonds that are available for purchase by the public. The State and its Independent Authorities have a variety of financing programs for transportation, schools and State facilities which will be described on this web site at the time bonds are being issued.  Other bonds not backed by the State may also be issued by Independent Authorities. You may find links to information on those bonds below.

For residents of New Jersey, these bonds are usually exempt from federal and state income tax. Neither the State nor its Independent Authorities sell bonds directly to the public. Bonds are sold through registered broker-dealers (please see “How Do I Purchase Bonds?” and “Frequently Asked Questions” for more information).

Federal Highway Reimbursement Revenue Note

Federal Highway Reimbursement Revenue Notes may be issued by the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund Authority (the “Authority”), an Independent Authority of the State. The Notes are secured by payments made by the Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Transportation (“NJDOT”) to the Authority pursuant to a Reimbursement Revenue Funding Agreement. Payments under such Funding Agreement are made solely from payments received by the NJDOT from the United States government under federal highway aid programs, which payments represent federal reimbursements to NJDOT for funds advanced by NJDOT. Federal Highway Reimbursement Revenue Notes do not constitute a debt or liability of the State or any other political subdivision thereof (other than the Authority, to the limited extent set forth in the documentation authorizing such notes) and do not constitute a pledge of the faith and credit of the State or any political subdivision thereof.  Debt service payments on Federal Highway Reimbursement Revenue Notes in any fiscal year of the State are subject to appropriation from time to time by the State Legislature.  The State Legislature has no legal obligation to make any such appropriations. Debt service payments on Federal Highway Reimbursement Revenue Notes in any fiscal year of the State are also subject to the availability of funds to be requisitioned by NJDOT from the Federal Highway Administration and to the receipt of such funds by NJDOT. See “Frequently Asked Questions – What is a Federal Highway Reimbursement Revenue Note?” for more information.
