The Agency is financially self-supporting, setting loan interest rates slightly above its cost and charging fees to cover its lending costs and risks.

The Agency has $6.8 billion in assets that are comprised mainly of loan receivables and investments related to bond proceeds. Each year, the Agency is audited by independent outside auditors and produces an annual report by November 1st. The annual report and audited financial statements outline the lending activity and services provided by the Agency and the financial results of those activities.
