Conduit bonds are bonds issued by a municipality on behalf of a private entity. Conduit bonds are normally issued to fund projects by non profit (501(c)(3)) entities. Examples of the type of project funded by conduit bonds is public housing.
Although the bond is issued by the municipality normally the interest and principal payments are tied to the project only. If the revenues generated by the project are not sufficient to cover bond payments then the government is normally not required to step in and make payments.

Until the launch of Learnbonds.com in late 2011 there was no single site on the internet catering exclusively to the individual bond investor.
