Scope and Content Note

These records are copies of New York State Housing Finance Agency service contract obligation bond transaction books held by the Division of the Budget. By law, the director of the Division of the Budget is a member of the board of directors of the Housing Finance Agency. The records consist of printed bound volumes of opinions, exhibits, copies of canceled checks, certificates, schedules, letters of representation, compliance and other agreements, correspondence, and resolutions. They document transactions involving service contract obligation revenue bonds, the issuance and redemption of which by the Housing Finance Agency provides the funds necessary for loans to the variety of categories listed above.

The stamped binding of each volume shows the type and series of bonds, the amount (in the tens of million of dollars), and the closing date of each issue. An "index" listing all closing documents appears at the fore of each volume.
