How the Center Does Business 

Technical Assistance

By Request

The Center for Innovative Finance Support includes experts in many aspects of program and project finance, procurement, and revenue generation who are available to provide information and assistance. The mechanism for providing technical assistance varies according to the nature of the request. For example, assistance may come directly from the expert, while at other times it may be offered through the workshops, peer exchanges, or the FHWA Center for Innovative Finance Support Academy.

The Center for Innovative Finance Support Office has designated Primary Technical Assistance Contacts (PTACs) to coordinate assistance for Project Finance (i.e., GARVEEs, SIBs, Section 129 Loans), Public-Private Partnerships (P3s), and Tolling. Please direct your questions to your designated PTAC. Your PTAC will coordinate with the entire team of Center for Innovative Finance Support experts to provide you a response.
